- Providence Village launches website
Providence Village is in the early stages of coming to life. As the Sisters of Providence of St. Vincent de Paul bring their ministry to completion while at once fostering the birth of Providence Village, the stories of what was, what is, and what is becoming are weaving together in rich ways.

- Come, Journey to Transformation
Each year, the Seasonal Planning Committee, a sub-committee of the Congregational Liturgy Committee, gathers for an afternoon of reflection and faith sharing on the scripture readings of the Paschal Cycle. This period includes the Lenten Season, Holy Week, the Paschal Triduum and the Easter Season culminating in the celebration of Pentecost. Based on the shared reflection, this year’s focus is Come, Journey to Transformation.
