The following is to let you know about a great opportunity for young women in their 20s and 30s who have a passion for the gospel, who want to serve others, who seek ways to deepen their lives as followers of Jesus, and who would like an experience of intentional community.
The Sisters of St. John the Divine (an Anglican monastic community in Toronto) have opened applications for the 2017-2018 cohort of our program called Companions on an Ancient Path. We are now about 8 months into the first year of the program, and we are excited and privileged to have five young women from across Canada and from various denominational backgrounds living with us this year. You can read more about the program at the following links:

Here are a few highlights of Companions on an Ancient Path.
*It is a FREE opportunity for women to spend a year building community among themselves, learning from a healthy traditional community, and developing spiritual disciplines that they can take out into their future lives.
*The program is supported by SSJD and by a generous grant from the Anglican Diocese of Toronto.
*It would appeal especially to those who would like to take a gap year in their studies, a year off between studies and work, or a leave of absence from their work.
*And the program is offered in partnership with Wycliffe College where Companions will have the opportunity to take courses in spiritual formation that may transfer back to their home institutions.
