All are welcome in this sacred space, offering gentle hospitality, comfortable accommodation, retreats and spiritual direction in an atmosphere of transformative stillness.
All our facilities are wheel-chair accessible and we make every effort to accommodate any special needs our guests may have. While the Sisterhood is an Anglican monastic community, we welcome women and men from all spiritual traditions and those with no religious affiliation.
Let us Host your Group
We have three meeting rooms that can accommodate guests up to
- 50 (the Conference Room),
- 30 (St. Margaret’s Chapel), and
- 25 (St. Peter).
We also have a number of sitting rooms that double as breakout rooms, and a number of interview rooms for spiritual direction and pastoral conversations.
Groups who meet at the Convent may provide their own leadership, or may request a sister to lead a retreat, workshop, or quiet day:
- conferences and annual meetings
- congregational retreats
- parish and diocesan committees
- staff days; study groups; prayer circles
- youth groups; confirmation classes
. . . why not YOUR next group meeting?
St. John’s Convent is located in a quiet urban area of North Toronto adjacent to 25 acres of parkland that guests are free to enjoy. We are easily accessible from the airport via major highways, and from downtown Toronto via public transit. While we have ample parking, we encourage ecological responsibility in the use of public transit and car-pooling when possible. See location details here »
