Sisters of Divine Providence (Lorraine)
Founded in Lorraine, France in 1762 by Father Jean Martin Moye, for the propagation of the faith, the ensuring of a Christian education to children, especially those of the rural population, for the care of the sick, and other works of mercy.
Suppressed in 1792, the congregation was re-established after the French Revolution.
The American province of the Sisters of Divine Providence of Saint-Jean-de-Bassel was founded in 1889 at Covington, Kentucky by three sisters of the general mother-house at Saint-Jean-de-Bassel, for the Christian education of youth in America.
The congregation has houses, including academies, schools, homes, and one infant asylum, in France, Belgium, and the United States.
