Spend a year living in God’s Rhythm
Join the Sisters of Saint John the Divine for a year’s travel adventure as we follow Jesus on the road of prayer, community, learning, service, and creative enjoyment.
Are you interested in the new monastic movement? Contemplating next steps on your journey? Wanting to experience life in community, learn more about prayer, serve others, and take monastic values back into “the world”?
The Sisters of Saint John the Divine invite women between the ages of 21 and 39 to explore an expression of new monasticism rooted in the Anglican tradition. Companions will develop a rhythm of life including public and private prayer, engage in service to others, and learn to live in intentional community.
In addition you will:
● cultivate an appreciation for countercultural
values while growing in peace
● deepen your rootedness and spiritual
intimacy, with God and each other in
● discover a personal path to spiritual
growth and transformation
● discern individual gifts and vocation
Room and board are provided, and most living expenses are covered by the Sisterhood. Companions, in turn, use their gifts to share in the work of ministry and have the same free time, retreat opportunities, and vacation as the Sisters.
A Love of Prayer
Learn to pray alongside a community steeped in a life of prayer, contemplation and meditation, while also participating in the daily liturgical rhythm of the convent.
A Commitment to Work
Practice the presence of God while participating in work, both inside the convent and in service to the world.
A Lifetime of Study
Grow in wisdom and knowledge through spiritual formation courses offered jointly by the Sisterhood and Wycliffe College (University of Toronto), and those who are eligible may apply for academic credit.
