Honoring the work of religious brothers & sisters

Posted

Many active members of the religious orders, religious Sisters, Brothers and Priests, have served and continue to serve in the Diocese of Providence throughout its history. They have given witness in classrooms, in caring for the sick and abandoned, and in a multitude of apostolates geared to continually changing times and circumstances. The lives of contemplative religious have been a spiritual resource for the whole church as well. The Office for Religious for the Diocese of Providence provides support and services to the hundreds of religious men and women who reside in the Ocean State. A number of religious orders perform critical ministry throughout the Diocese in service of Christ and the faithful.

Find a list of some of the orders active in the Diocese at dioceseofprovidence.org/office-of-religious.
