Newest group makes commitment to become Providence Associates

TERRE HAUTE — Eleven individuals made their first commitments as Providence Associates during a Eucharistic Liturgy recently at St. Mary-of-the-Woods.

Providence Associates enter into a relationship with the Sisters of Providence for the opportunity to participate in the life and mission of the Sisters. Some ways associates are able to participate are mutual and intentional prayer; appropriate community gatherings; reflection and prayer groups; retreats and spiritual enrichment programs; social justice activities; eco-justice projects and events; and congregation ministries.

Those who recently made their first commitment from the Wabash Valley are: Judith Collins, Joanna Dailey and William Hughes of Terre Haute; Kris Beck of Brazil; Tracy Wilson of Clinton; and Michelle Davis of Paris, Ill.

In seven years since this relationship opportunity was introduced, there are more than 170 people who have chosen to become a Providence Associate, in addition to 24 who are preparing to become associates in 2012-13 after a year or more of candidacy.

Providence Associates are women and men (at least 18 years of age) of diverse faith traditions who seek a formal relationship with the Sisters of Providence. They may have known the Sisters for a long time or have just recently heard about the Sisters. Associates are drawn to this relationship for many reasons, but primarily, they wish to deepen their spiritual life and they see themselves as being called to respond to the Providence vision through their own particular way of life.

For more information contact Sister Diane Mason, assistant director of Providence Associates, at either 708-364-7917 or dmason@spsmw.org; or Debbie Dillow, assistant director, 317-994-6821 or at ddillow@spsmw.org. Also visit www.Providence Associates.org.
