Missionary Catechists of Divine Providence

We, the Missionary Catechists of Divine Providence, with a unique gift to serve Hispanics, are inspired by Sister Benitia Vermeersch, our Foundress, and Our Lady of Guadalupe. We are called to live the Gospel and minister to all people, especially the poor.

How we got started

The Society of the Missionary Catechists of Divine Providence (MCDPs) was founded in response to a special need, namely the material and spiritual needs of the refugees who fled from Mexico during the revolution of 1910-1936. It was started with volunteers who attending the parochial school and other young ladies of Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish in Houston, Texas.
