Join Us for a Day of Fasting and Prayer

In the spirit of our Founder, Bishop Wilhelm Emmanuel von Ketteler, who always spoke the truth to justice, the Provincial Leadership Team of Sisters of Divine Providence, along with Sisters and Associates, strongly condemn the January 6, 2021 attacks on the U.S. Capitol and the leaders of our country trapped inside. The blatant racist, white supremacist action that prompted it is even more heinous because it was spurred by those who pledged an oath to protect citizens and uphold the fundamental principles of democracy.

To Light Through Love

For many years, the Sisters of Divine Providence have marked the Advent season with white lights in our windows recalling the Gospel words: "The light shines in the darkness." The candles signify our promise of hospitality to all who come to our doors. This year, when the bleak pandemic seems to have changed everything, our candlelight has changed, too—from the quietness of white to the uplifting vibrancy of primary colors.
