Welcome to the website of the Daughters of Wisdom of the United States Province. We hope that you enjoy reading these pages and that you get a sense of who we are.
We are called in community to seek and to contemplate Divine Wisdom, present in a world that hungers for meaning, justice and compassion. We seek to bring the message of Jesus, Incarnate Wisdom, to people experiencing injustice, violence, poverty and oppression, especially women and children.

You Shall Be My Witnesses
By Sr. Barbara O’Dea, DW
There they are in the upper room, 120 of them, - the Apostles, Mary, the mother of Jesus and the other women are the heart of the group of disciples – praying, remembering, expecting. But who are the other women? Mary Magdalen, Johanna, Mary, the mother of James and the others who had witnessed to Jesus’ death and burial come to mind. They were the ones who found the empty tomb and returned to the city to announce their discovery to the eleven and to all the others (Lk 24, 10). Surely, they were an integral part of that praying community along with the other hundred or so unnamed disciples.
