Congregation of Divine Providence (C.D.P.)—
Melbourne, KY The Congregation of Divine Providence is
an international community established in France in 1762
and in the U.S. in 1889. Contemplation of Jesus reveals
our Provident God and impels us to become living expressions of God’s tender love through works of mercy. This
is the heart of our spiritual life and community. There is
a special concern for women and youth and a preference
for the most abandoned. Our ministries include teaching
(all forms and levels), social work, health care, pastoral
ministry (hospitals, campuses, parishes), direct service
of the poor, retreats, and peace and justice work. We are
present in nine countries. In the U.S. we are in 12 dioceses
and archdioceses. We live in small communities where we
attempt to follow Jesus and emphasize the gospel values
of simplicity, poverty, charity, and abandonment to
Providence. Consider joining us. Vocation Director, 1000

Daughters of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul (D.C.) We
are to see in our brothers and sisters who are poor the person
of Jesus Christ. These are the words of St. Vincent de Paul,
a humble priest who, together with St. Louise de Marillac,
a noble widow, founded the Daughters of Charity of St.
Vincent de Paul in 1633 in France. Two hundred years
later, Elizabeth Ann Seton, an American widow, founded
the community in the United States. The community
was the first order of women to live and work among our
brothers and sisters who are poor. Today, the Daughters
of Charity, an international community of over 19,500
women, continue to seek out those in need. Prayer, community life, and service to our brothers and sisters who
are poor are essential elements of their lives. For more

recreation, and apostolic labor. The apostolic ministry of
each sister is discerned with community as the Holy Spirit

Daughters of the Charity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus
(F.C.S.C.J.) Contemplate and experience the Love of
Jesus in our international congregation. Our mission is
to witness to the love of the Sacred Heart; to the mystery
of God’s nearness, of God dwelling among us. Our desire
is to live the virtues of welcome, reconciliation, and
simplicity in a world that dearly needs such a witness.
We strive to reveal that Jesus is alive, near, and that his
love is universal. We witness this by our willingness to
respond to the needs of others. We minister in education
of children and adults, serving parishes and diocese,
retreat work, health care, and sharing in projects of our
sisters in other countries. The apostolic value of our
activity depends more on our union with God than on
the nature of our work. Good health and at least a high
school education are required. To learn more contact:
