Called to live the Christian life with zeal and joy.
We are the Sisters of Social Service in Canada.
Ours is one of three international groups of the Federation of the Society of the Sisters of Social Service.
This Roman Catholic Society traces its roots to Hungary in 1908 and has pioneered the role of women religious in addressing social and related concerns throughout the world.

The Sisters of Social Service will be celebrating 100 years of foundation during 2023. Many activities will be held during this jubilee year. The opening of the year of celebration will begin in January 2023.
Delegates from 9 countries meet periodically to make plans for future activities/events of the SSS Federation (Cuba, Philippines, United States, Mexico, Taiwan, Hungary, Slovakia, Romania and Canada). The Federation representatives consist of The General Directors/General Moderator of Eastern Europe, United States and Canada, and one delegate representing each country where the Institutes have districts/units. We believe this type of structure encourages better representation of the members of the Federation. Time is spent getting to know each other better and establishing long range plans that included such things as: the World Youth Days, the International Eucharistic Congress; and interchange among the countries for education and specific projects.
