The Diocese of Providence exists to fulfill the mission of the Universal Catholic Church by being the model of Jesus, teacher, sanctifier, and servant and to proclaim the Good News through evangelization, cathechesis and service. In recognition of the reign of God in our midst and in response to the Holy Spirit’s persistent movement, we are called to be the presence of Jesus to all.
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, as in all wisdom you teach and admonish one another, singing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God. - Colossians 3:16
