Sisters of Our Lady Immaculate (SOLI Sisters)
The Sisters of Our Lady Immaculate (SOLI Sisters) are a religious congregation founded in Guelph, Ontario in 1977 by Father William Lloyd Ryan and Mother Mary Josephine Mulligan. From the Holy Spirit, Mother Mary Josephine and Father Ryan received the charism to recognize two great needs of the Church in our time; first, a faithful renewal of religious life according to the teachings of the Church; and second, the courageous restoration of the teaching of the Catholic Faith in its fullness to our Catholic people. Mother Mary Josephine also identified the need for visiting the sick and the care of the elderly. As women religious, they moved to Cambridge, Ontario and started visiting seniors in their homes, inviting them for tea at the Convent.
Today, they have 4 convents across Southern Ontario in the apostolates of religious education in any and all forms as well as the care of the elderly, drawing both young and old to a deeper and fuller understanding and love for Our Lord and our Holy Catholic Faith.
Father Ryan and Mother Mary Josephine always taught the sisters that faithfully striving to live holy religious lives would be their primary purpose and from this would flow the grace to teach the Faith with boldness in a world that no longer recognizes Christ.
They aren’t only witnesses of Christ to society, but also see Christ in the people they serve.
