The Sisterhood of St. John the Divine
A Religious Community Within the Anglican Church of Canada
WHO ARE WE?
The Sisterhood of St. John the Divine is a contemporary expression of the religious life in the Anglican Church. Founded in Toronto in 1884, we are a prayer and gospel-centered monastic community, bound together by the call to live out our baptismal covenant through the traditional monastic vows of poverty, chastity and obedience.
The Sisterhoood is a contemporary expression of the religious life in the Anglican Church.
Living as we do in a time of unprecedented change, we find that these vows anchor us in the life of Jesus and in the transforming experience of the Gospel. Nurtured by our founding vision of prayer, community and service, we are open and responsive to the needs of the church and the contemporary world, continually seeking the guidance of the Holy Spirit in our life and ministry.
Called to be a sign of Christ, the Sisterhood witnesses to the power of his reconciling and forgiving love through the gospel imperatives of prayer, spiritual guidance, justice, peace, care for creation, hospitality, ministering to those in need, and promoting unity, healing, and wholeness.
Our ministries include hospitality, ministering to those in need,and promoting unity, healing, and wholeness.
