Second Sunday of Advent

The second candle, also purple, represents faith. It is called the “Bethlehem Candle” as a reminder of Mary and Joseph’s journey to Bethlehem.

December Reflections
December has some important dates: December 6 is National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women in Canada. And December 10 is the anniversary of the 1948 United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
First Sunday of Advent

The Sisters of St. Joseph of Toronto would like to share the season of Advent with you. Advent is the period beginning four Sundays before Christmas, observed in commemoration of the coming of Christ into the world.

Job Posting: Occupational Therapist
Reporting to the Administrator/Director of Care, the Occupational Therapist promotes functional independence in self-care, productivity and leisure, optimizing each Sister of Joseph of Toronto’s quality of care and quality of life and supporting her ability to enjoy health, independence, choice and dignity throughout all stages of her life.

National Housing Day
I find it appropriate that National Housing Day is on November 22, the day that we celebrate Mother St. John Fontbonne, the re-foundress of the Sisters of St. Joseph, who had a deep commitment to loving the dear neighbour.

Pray With Us

Since 2002, December 12 has been the National Day of Prayer in Solidarity with Indigenous Peoples. Let us pray for and with our First Nations People in Canada, asking God to bless them on this day and all days. 

Meet a Sister

Sister Dorothy Schweitzer
I received far more than I gave.
As I look back over the 50 years I have been a Sister of St. Joseph, I am amazed that the years have melted away so quickly. Even more — I am filled with gratitude for the gifts I have received. Through most of these years, I was a high school teacher in Toronto, Oshawa, Vancouver and Edmonton.
