    Fr. Guanella, a friend of St. John Bosco, founded the Servants of Charity and the Institute of the Daughters of St. Mary of Providence (not "Our Lady" of Providence). The Sisters are known as the DSMP's. I know this because I work for them and can proudly say my sister is a Sister! With a provincial motherhouse in Chicago, the Sisters care for the mentally handicapped and the elderly. Congratulations to all who carry on the work of Papa Luigi!
