Section II

Declaration




As Oblate Sisters of Providence, we build the Congregation of the redeemed as we share Christ in a union of love, exemplifying that Jesus is the center of our lives.

We manifest that we are an apostolic Congregation as we become agents of change and heralds of peace.

We move forward together as we demonstrate appreciation of and response to diversity of cultures and ideas.

We manifest the visible presence of Christ as we embrace one another with gentleness, compassion and care.

We call forth the best in one another as we take the initiative for continuous human and spiritual development, and are open to the Spirit in joy, hospitality and shared vision.



What is community life?
Religious life in community refers to persons living together in loving oneness. We
strengthen this personal relationship by a deep, abiding love and concern analogous to
that of the early Christians of whom it was said, "See how
they love one another."


Our hospitality is our expression of our awareness and concern for each other.
