SP President Sister Ruth McGoldrick does the Ribbon-Cutting honors at the 1999 Grand Opening of Providence Place.

A Testament to Vision and Community

In the 1990s, SP President Sister Ruth McGoldrick, alongside Sisters Joan Mullen, SP, and Mary Caritas Geary, SP, led their community on a journey to repurpose their Providence Mother House. This beloved residence — steeped in history and tradition — had served its original purpose for over six decades, but now it stood with unused space.

This prompted the Sisters to carefully reconsider its future.

Their Vision Was Clear

To honor the legacy of the Sisters of Providence while meeting the evolving needs of the civic community.

Thus, Providence Place at Ingleside was born—an active, independent senior community for residents seeking to embrace life fully while maintaining their autonomy and well-being.

This year, as we commemorate 25 years of Providence Place, we celebrate not only the physical transformation of a building, but also the profound impact it has had on countless lives. From a private home for the Sisters, to a home open to religious and lay persons of all faiths, Providence Place welcomes individuals into a community defined by warmth, camaraderie, and mutual respect.
