Archives Services

Providence Archives is a private archive. The staff provides reference and research services to Sisters of Providence and Providence staff. Reference services may also be provided to historians, scholars, and the general public. The staff responds to telephone, letter, or e-mail requests, but cannot conduct extensive research for persons outside the religious community and sponsored ministries. Researchers are welcome to use historical resources at the Archives. Some materials are confidential and access is restricted.


  • Staff: Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
  • Researchers: Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., by appointment
