The Darkest Paths Lead To Light, Though Love and Grace
Sisters of Divine Providence
9:06 AM - Apr 13, 2020

Our co-foundress, Marie de la Roche, said that "the darkest paths lead to light, through love and grace." This quote is particularly cogent during these 40 days of Easter. It has been said that Easter is Christ going down into the tomb and pushing life out of the tomb. During these 40 days, we invite you visit this "Providence in the Pandemic" Facebook post and share and experience a blossoming forth of witnesses to the abundance that is God’s Providence, even in the pandemic.

Thank You To The La Roche Community For Your Tremendous Support

Thank you for helping us meet the needs of our students during this difficult time. Even with the challenges we face within the La Roche University community to educate our students remotely and to take care of those students who must remain on campus, it is heartening to see the wave of contributions coming in for the Sister Candace Introcaso Student Emergency Fund, the Providence Food Pantry, and for Counseling & Health Services. We are using these funds efficiently and immediately, and our students are so thankful for the emergency funds they are receiving.

Thank you for answering our prayers, giving our students hope and keeping the faith in what is possible with help from our Provident God.
