Sisters of Sion

We are called to witness by our life to God’s faithful love for Jewish people and to his fidelity to the promises He revealed to the patriarchs and prophets of Israel for all humanity. Our vocation gives us a particular responsibility to promote understanding and justice for the Jewish community, and to keep alive in the Church the consciousness that in some mysterious way, Christianity is linked to Judaism from its origin to its final destiny.

It is by means of biblical and theological study and dialogue that the Sisters endeavour to build new friendships between the church and synagogue.

The Sisters of Sion in North London first came to Stroud Green in 1980 from Highbury, where they had a house in St. Joan of Arc parish. They were a much-loved part of the parish community of St Peter’s, providing hospitality and welcome as well as a space for study of the scriptures at their home in Mount View Road until the death of Sister Patricia O’Sullivan RIP in 2018.
