To Light through Love

  • To Light through Love

"There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it."

-Edith Wharton

In celebration of the birth of Jesus, the Sisters of Divine Providence will keep lighted candles in the windows of their homes and chapels from December 1, 2013, through January 6, 2014. The lights symbolize the annual To Light through Love appeal, and will serve as reminders of the light and love of God's Providence in our lives. They will remind us, too, of the many Sisters who have carried--and continue to carry--the light of God's Providence to others since their arrival in the United States in 1876.

This holy season of Advent encourages us to wait in joyful anticipation for the Savior whose welcome arrival into our hearts will help us change the world. We invite you to join with us in bringing the Christ Child to birth every day by actively working to co-create a world of compassion, justice, and peace. You can do that by making a gift that the Sisters can use for the greatest need. We invite you to make a donation online.
