Our Founders

The society of the Sisters of St. Ann of Providence was founded by the noble couple Carlo and Guilia de Barolo of Turin, Italy in the year 1834. They entrusted the congregation to the protection of St. Ann an Educator par Excellence. The couple belonged to the royal family of Piedmont and was child less. They being great visionaries, well educated and wealthy wanted to bring sunshine into the lives of many poor and neglected children. Hence they took up various social reforms and started schools for the poor children.

Today the society renders its services in different parts of the world, USA, Italy, UK, Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, Philippines and Africa. The sisters of St. Ann' are involved in various mission activities like education, health care, social services etc. to continue the mission and vision of the founders.

Today the society renders its services in different parts of the world, USA, Italy, UK, Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, Philippines and Africa. The sisters of St. Ann' are involved in various mission activities like education, health care, social services etc. to continue the mission and vision of the founders.

Our Founders, Carlo Tancredi and Giulia di Barolo, entrusted us to the Protection of St. Ann, Mother of the Virgin Mary, so that, like her, we may dedicate ourselves to the young generations. We are in the Church consecrated women, called to be instruments of Providence to the poor and the little ones.


Our spirituality is centred on the Trinitarian mystery, which is a mystery of Love for the salvation of mankind: "God so loved the world, that He gave His Only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life" (Jn 3:16). This mystery fills our life: we entrust ourselves totally to the Providence of the Father and animated by the Holy Spirit, we unite ourselves to the offering of the Son for the salvation of man. In this way through our life and actions we continue the mission of Jesus for the true happiness of our brethren.


"Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me; See that you do not despise one of these little ones."(Mt 18:5, 10).


Through our formative action we continue in our times the attitude of Jesus who welcomed little children: we place ourselves at the service of the happiness of our brethren to restore in each one the face of the Son of God.
