We are the Daughters of St. Mary of Providence (DSMP). Sometimes, we are called the Guanellian Sisters after our founder, Saint Louis Guanella. We are a Religious Congregation of Pontifical Rite, living under the auspices of our Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI and the direction of the Church. This love and fidelity to the Magisterium of the Church is an outstanding quality that every Sister fosters through a total commitment to God of a life in service of the Church.
We live our religious consecration, professing the three vows of Chastity, Poverty and Obedience in a communion of life with each other. We spread the "culture of charity" in fourteen countries around the world: Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Romania, India, the Philippines, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Paraguay, Mexico, Canada and the United States. The Immaculate Conception Province comprises Canada, Mexico, the Philippines and the United States.
In a communion of faith and love, loyal to the grace of its origins and always striving for perfect charity, we entrust ourselves totally to the merciful providence of the Father in order to fulfill the plan of our Founder.
We give witness to the value of human life from conception to natural death and to the merciful love of Christ toward all men and are alert and attentive to accept the signs of the times as the call of Divine Providence.
