International Congregation

The Congregation of Divine Providence is an international religious community of approximately 500 sisters. We minister in nine countries throughout the world: Belgium, Ecuador, France, the Islands of the Grand Comoros, Madagascar, Europe and the United States.

The Superior General of the Congregation is Sr. Anny Deutsch, elected to her first term in July, 2023. She is the principal animator of the spiritual and apostolic life of the Congregation.

The Motherhouse

The motherhouse of the Congregation of Divine Providence is in the village of St. Jean de Bassel, located in the Lorraine area of France and centrally located between the major cities of Metz, Nancy and Strasbourg. The buildings that comprise the motherhouse were constructed in the mid-1800’s but the village itself has a history that goes back to the 7th century.

Presently the Motherhouse is known as a place of hospitality. Sisters of Divine Providence from Madagascar, the U.S. and Europe are always welcomed at their Motherhouse.
