Anglican Nuns

SSJD-community-photo-Nov2014cYes, we have two Anglican orders of religious women in Canada; the Community of the Sisters of the Church and the Sisterhood of St. John the Divine. This latter order(pictured above) recently sent us their newsletter and a calendar of upcoming events.

Food for the SOUL 2015 to 2016 offers one day reflective events and longer weekend events like Listen to Your life a weekend event led by our own Sherman Hesselgrave. Some of the events are more action oriented like a writers workshop with Kathleen Norris.

You can also choose to simply retreat for the day or days on your own or seek the guidance of a sister. They are happy to host you in the guesthouse and you can discover more here. They also welcome people to join them in their regular worship.

The Sisterhood of St. John the Divine is a contemporary expression of the religious life for women within the Anglican Church of Canada. Nurtured by our founding vision of prayer, community and ministry, 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.

This community is one of several spiritual resources that we have close to home and will be looking at ways to share and highlight these communities in the coming months.

Lammas Day – Aug 1


Lammas Day is a traditional festival giving thanks for the beginning of harvest. Historically there was a custom of bringing a freshly baked loaf of bread to church and in some traditions the loaf was broken and left in the four corners of the barn to protect the grain.

St. Stephen in the Fields will celebrate Lammas Day this Saturday at 7 PM behind the Scadding Court Community Centre at Dundas and Bathurst.

Together,we bless the produce of the community garden, and bread freshly baked in the park’s wood-fired oven. We remember that even in the city we depend on the goodness of the natural world, and we celebrate the nurture, growth and richness of urban agriculture and food production. The service will be followed by a potluck; please bring food to share if you can.
