Welcome to our diocesan website. I hope that the information you find here will be interesting and useful.
In one of his homilies, our Holy Father Pope Francis described the significance of the institutional Church with these words: “Christ and the Church are inseparable. For the Church is herself God’s great family, which brings Christ to us. The Church, in giving us Jesus, offers us the fullness of the Lord’s blessing.”
The Diocese of Providence is a large and complex institution with many charitable, educational, pastoral and administrative services. Our excellent diocesan staff, although having diverse responsibilities, is united in its commitment to make the Diocese of Providence the very best it can be, to be as helpful as possible. In all that we do our ultimate goal is to further the work of Christ; to bring the “fullness of the Lord’s blessing” to our brothers and sisters.
Our diocesan website is the key that will unlock for you the doors of our diocesan Church. Come on in; look around; make yourself at home. I know that you will find the Diocese of Providence to be a manifestation of “God’s great family!”
