Declaration of Mission
We, the Oblate Sisters of Providence, faithful to our charism and the Spirituality of our Founders and trusting in Divine Providence, declare our mission is to embrace and to serve others with the same compassion with which Christ embraces us, sharing with all the unconditional love of the Suffering Jesus.
Statement of Charism
The original inspiration of the Oblate Sisters of Providence is that gift of the Spirit so evident in the life of Mother Mary Lange. This charism enables us, with total trust in God's Providence, to bring joy, healing and the liberating, redemptive love of the suffering Jesus to the victims of poverty, racism and injustice despite contradictions, prejudice and pain.
