Activity Program


Our activity program plans, implements and evaluates activities for senior Sisters. The Activities co-ordinator will interview, train and provide orientation for all new volunteers and students entering Providence Motherhouse.

Volunteers will encourage Sisters to become more independant, and promote quality and productivity in their lives. Volunteers assist Sisters to socialize, in order to prevent isolation and depression.

Sisters will gain a level of mental well-being by spending time with a volunteer.

For information on how to become a volunteer please contact the Activity Director/Volunteer co-ordinator at Providence Motherhouse.
