     History
    The Sisterhood of St. John the Divine is a contemporary expression of the religious life for women within the Anglican Church of Canada. They're stong focus on community has led them to offer a hand to those in need of rehabilitation. The convent, in addition to housing the sisters, acted as a refuge for those with substabce abuse problems. A large, two storey, section of the complex resembling a hospital wing housed those in rehab.
