The religious congregation of the Daughters of St. Mary of Providence was founded in 1881 by Saint Louis Guanella. The Daughters of St. Mary of Providence live their religious consecration, professing the three vows of chastity, poverty, and obedience in a communion of life with each other. Faithful to the magisterium of the Church, the sisters spread the “culture of charity,” giving witness to the value of human life from conception to natural death and to the merciful love of Christ toward all.
The sisters of the Immaculate Conception Province serve the Church and the people of God in: health care facilities for senior citizens, assisted living arrangements, low income housing for seniors, soup kitchen and food disbursement programs for the homeless, residential and day programs for developmentally disabled adults, diocesan youth and religious education programs, pastoral ministry, education, ministry of the Pious Union of St. Joseph, and situations of need as divine providence presents.
The Daughters of St. Mary of Providence serve the Church in fourteen countries around the world: Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Romania, India, the Philippines, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Paraguay, Mexico, Canada, and the United States.
