We wish to share the story of the ministries of the Marian Servants of Our Lady of Divine Providence. Our mission is to help bring Catholic Christians to a deeper understanding of their vocation and mission in Christ, in the Church, and in the world. This is our community’s response to <a title=”Decree on the Apostolate of the Laity” href=”http://divineprovidence.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/Decree-on-the-Apostolate-of-the-Laity.pdf”>Vatican II</a> and the call in John Paul II’s apostolic letter to the laity, <em><a href=”http://divineprovidence.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/christifideles_laici.pdf”>Christifideles Laici</a>.</em> The call of Christ, has summoned all the lay faithful to labor in “the vineyard.” As a response to this call, we have established the House of Prayer Chapel, a retreat ministry, the Cenacle School of Spiritual Direction, and other ministries to help in the formation of the Catholic faithful.
