Under her leadership, the Sisters of Providence opened schools, orphanages, and hospitals, contributing significantly to the growth and development of the Catholic Church and education in Indiana. St. Mother Theodore Guerin was canonized as a saint by Pope Benedict XVI in 2006, recognizing her enduring legacy of faith, service, and education.
