Villa St Joseph Ecology and Spirituality Centre is owned and staffed by the Sisters of the Congregation of the Sisters of St. Joseph in Canada.  This historic building on the shores of Lake Ontario has a long and varied history. We value holistic spirituality inclusive of all peoples and all the earth.  We approach ministry and programs from an ecological, inter-faith and justice-oriented stance. Our centre offers a quiet, relaxing environment in which to rest, pray, reflect and be renewed in body and spirit.

What is the appropriate relationship between humans and the whole living system? In the act of honoring the connection and dependency that we have with the whole web of life lies the possibility of a deep and abiding communion. If, as author Wendell Berry has written, “you can’t know who you are until you know where you are,” then the process of discovering and achieving a sense of place may be the most important step in our life’s journey. This program is based on interviews with five people who are exploring this frontier: Kirkpatrick Sale, John and Nancy Jack Todd, Paul Winter, and Jeff Bercuvitz. 29 minutes ©1994 Foundation for Global Community - - - The archival Web site of the Foundation for Global Community is at
