Sia.-I am glad C. 0. M. wrote that letter on the above subject. I wonder if she has heard of that modern religious congregation founded in Toronto in 1922, the Sisters of Service, who work in the outlying districts of the Home Mission field as teachers, nurses, social workers? In place' seldom visited by priests, they do the work of nessionarres " as far as in therm lies." all under the supervision of the local priest. They do not wear a habit hut a grey uniform. This modem c,ongregallon is an adaptation of those wonderful nuns founded in Australia by Mary McKillop, the Sisters of St. Joseph. who have a Prohation'House at Newmarket, Co. Cork. Eire.
Just befpre the war, another modern congregation was begun in Viennathe Victim Sisters, These Sisters have no convents-they live in lodginghouses of the workers and among proleterians who have given up the practice of religion and they care for the poor and the children-even those in the greatest wretchedness.
The Sisters of St. Joan founded in 1914 at Worcester, U.S.A., look after the tempotal needs of the clergy by service in -priests' houses and colleges.
This congregation was founded by one of the Assumptionist Fathers who have several houses in England.
