Sisterhood of St. John the Divine
Founded in Toronto in 1884 by Mother Hannah Grier Coome, the order ministers at St. John's Rehab Hospital and is known for its members' distinctive blue habits, retreat leadership, and spiritual direction services. The sisters make altar linens to order, and founded the Altar Guild at St. Thomas Anglican Church. The Sisterhood has been active in liturgical renewal and unequivocal in its acceptance of the Book of Alternative Services.
The order has houses in Toronto (St. John's Convent and Guest House) and Victoria (St. John's House, BC).
