Yes, 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.
