Pray With Us

On September 21 in ordinary time, we celebrate St. Matthew, Apostle and Evangelist.
The Gospel bearing Matthew's name was written for Jewish Christians around the year 85, and was intended to show Jesus as the fulfillment of God's promise of a Messiah. Matthew’s name, originally, was Levi, and he was a tax collector for the Romans, a fact that made him unpopular with the Jews, who regarded the Romans as oppressors.

Meet a Sister

Sister Ellen Leonard Sister Ellen Leonard
My membership in the Congregation of the Sisters of St. Joseph has given me the opportunity to develop my gifts and to share them with others.

"I entered the world under the eye of Sister Vincentia," says Sister Ellen, describing her birth in 1933 at St. Michael's Hospital, then under the direction of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Toronto.

Ellen attended St. Joseph's College School, where the teachers impressed her and she felt called to join the congregation upon finishing high school.
