In 1818, THE DAUGHTERS OF PROVIDENCE (LES FILLES DE LA PROVIDENCE) was created by founding Sisters, Anne-Marie Cartel, Marie Conan, Fanny Chaplain and Esther Beauchemain, guided by Father Jean-Marie de la Mennais. Their dream was to provide an education for the very poor, the many homeless children in Brittany France. In 1897 six sisters from St Brieuc, France arrived in Prince Albert, then in the Northwest Territories, with the Mission to “Make Jesus Christ Known and Loved”, firmly rooted in God's Providence, with The Blessed Virgin Mary and St. Joseph as companions and models. For 120 of these 200 years, there have been a total of 225 of us, prairie women, who have ministered throughout Canada and beyond, including the United States, Europe, South America and Africa. At times we have partnered with other Congregations including The Brothers of Christian Instruction, The Oblates of Mary Immaculate, The Grey Nuns, The Maryknolls and most recently The Daughters of Providence of Nebbi Uganda. Today it is with grateful hearts that we seek to live with simplicity the reality of our presence among you, our brothers and sisters. Our loving care is rooted in contemplation of the Word and in Prayer. We extend an invitation to come celebrate with us, in Prince Albert June 10, 2018 at the Sacred Heart Cathedral or in Saskatoon June 17, 2018 at Sts-Martyrs-Canadiens parish, 1007 Windsor Street, Saskatoon.
