Who We Are

We, the Sisters of St. Joseph of Toronto, are a Roman Catholic congregation of women founded in France in 1648. We have been in Toronto since 1851.

As a religious community, we are brought together by the love of Christ. We are called by God, the Gospel and the Church to serve those in need in simplicity and compassion and to pursue social justice and equality for all. We are committed to nurture community with those who are homeless, alienated or poor, women at risk, and our wounded earth. We continue our long tradition of meeting unmet needs with life-giving ministries.

Our ministries serve seniors, young adults, newcomers to Canada and those who are alienated and economically disadvantaged. We care for all creation with a special emphasis on clean drinking water as a human right. We invite others to collaborate with us in our mission and ministry and participate in our spirituality.
