Sisters' of St. John

The Sisterhood of St. John the Divine is a contemporary expression of the religious life for women within the Anglican Church of Canada. Founded in 1884, they are a prayer and gospel-centred monastic community bound together by the call to live out their baptismal covenant. Nurtured by their founding vision of prayer, community, and ministry they are open and responsive to the needs of the church and the contemporary world, continually seeking the guidance of the Holy Spirit in their life and ministry. Called to be a sign of Christ, the Sisterhood witnesses to the power of Christ’s reconciling and forgiving love through the gospel imperatives of prayer, spiritual guidance, justice, peace, care for creation, hospitality, ministering to those in need, promoting unity, healing and wholeness.
