JANUARY 14, 1762 – JANUARY 14, 2024

On January 14, 1762, Marguerite Lecomte arrived in Saint Hubert, a small hamlet in the Metz region of France. Sent by Jean Martin Moyë, a priest from Lorraine, she entrusted herself entirely to Divine Providence. She opened a school there. Every year, it’s a day of celebration for all the Sisters. The opening of this first school marked the beginning of the Congregation of the Sisters of Divine Providence. Happy feast day to all the Sisters and members of the Fraternities.


The President of the Republic declared a state of emergency and even internal war earlier this week. Escapes, mutinies and hostage-takings have taken place in prisons. Violence has also broken out on city streets. Criminal groups linked to drug trafficking are at the root of this situation. Our sisters Alicia and Liliane share this daily life. They comply with government directives to stay at home as much as possible. Schools are temporarily closed. Our two sisters ask us to join them in a prayer for peace.
