It was an early initiative of Archbishop Thomas Collins to invite the Sisters of Life to Toronto.
Pictured above with George Cardinal Pell, they were founded in 1991 by the late John Cardinal O'Connor, Archbishop of New York. The Sisters of Life is a contemplative and active religious community of women for the protection and enhancement of the sacredness of every human life. In addition to the traditional religious vows of poverty, chastity and obedience, the Sisters of Life take a fourth vow; "to protect and enhance the sacredness of human life."
The Sisters of Life have recently opened a new centre to serve pregnant women vulnerable to the pressures of abortion. The Sisters of Life Centre is located at the former St. Catherine of Siena Parish, 1099 Danforth Avenue, Toronto (between Donlands and Greenwood). The Sisters provide support and assistance to women who are pregnant and in need. They also train the lay faithful to serve alongside the Sisters as Co-Workers of Life. On Saturday, 12 June at 1:00pm, Archbishop Collins will offer the opening Mass and Blessing of the Centre, which will be followed by an open house.
