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.
“Friends of Providence” welcome all those seeking calm, silence, and retreat.
“Friends of Nature” welcome students to discover the richness of nature and the environment.
