For us, Sisters of Providence, religious life is a way of life chosen by women of many countries and cultures who feel called by God to love as Jesus loved. To take seriously the person of Jesus. His life and message motivate us and serve as our reason for existing. Being attracted to Christ by his Spirit, we strive to live the way of life inspired by Jesus in the Gospels.

By consecrating ourselves to God by religious vows, by living with other women who share the same ideal and by being the heart, hands, feet and face of God's love for those in need without distinction of race, nationality, age or religion, our whole life and being are dedicated to the service of God.
