Beautiful: The New Toronto Home of The Sisters of St. Joseph
Urban Toronto, April 18, 2013 — In a time when a good deal of Toronto's religious community is amalgamating into fewer buildings and some of the underused churches are being transformed into condos or performance spaces, it's rare when we see new faith-based facilities under construction. When we do see it though, these facilities have often been some of the more architecturally adventurous recent builds. Such is definitely the case for one of the oldest religious orders in the city, where the Sisters of Saint Joseph have land perched on the rim of the Don Valley at O'Connor Drive and Broadview Avenue. The sisters are moving into a new home that puts a good to deal of new construction in the city to shame.
