Sisters of St.Elizabeth
Following a request by the Sisters of St. Elizabeth, Canadian Religious Stewardship assumed the responsibility for the governance of their Religious Institute and the care of the Sisters who live in Trinity Manor and Samaritan Place. Both facilities are located next door to each other in Saskatoon and are sponsored by Emmanuel Care, a public juridic person of diocesan right. Trinity Manor offers independent and assisted living services while Samaritan place offers long-term care services.
They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers.
