Bringing the Gospel to the Great North is not only our passion and life, but a priority of each sister who is missioned in this beautiful land, so that as St. John Paul II exclaimed when describing the mission of the Daughters of St Paul, “the Word of God may speed on and triumph.”
The Book and Media Centre on Dufferin St is a true Catholic Resource Centre, and the books and material enrich the spiritual and faith lives of people of many ethnic groups. There isn't a week in the year in which our sisters aren't traveling across Canada attending catechetical and family life conferences, visiting parishes, schools and retreat houses so that the Word of God can be proclaimed, and giving seminars on Media Literacy and the Church’s teaching on Theology of the Body.
Most importantly, God has blessed the community with a growing number of vocations as young women seek admission to the community from Canada and have made their profession of vows.
How You Can Help
But now the time has come to seriously renovate our building to provide a safe home for our sisters, one that is conducive for living our Pauline religious vocation, and upgrade our Pauline Books and Media Center, which our Founder said was to be a light in the heart of the city. We have lived in our present convent and ministered out of our Book Centre on Dufferin Street for over 45 years. The building has not had a major renovation in that time period. As we look forward to one day passing the Pauline mission into the hands of Canadian vocations we need to turn our attention now to the major structural and building maintenance that is urgently needed.
We are absolutely certain that the God of miracles will also help us with this major endeavor. We are trying to raise two million dollars to carry out these urgent renovations. Your gift will help us keep the light of hope burning in today's world.
