The Presentation Brothers at the Parkdale Community in Toronto welcome over 45 young adults to their house recently for the annual Faith Connections BBQ. Many of these young people also come to the Brothers' regular Taizé prayer evenings.

Faith Connections was established in 2005 by the Sisters of St Joseph of Toronto as a way to connect with and minister to young adults in the 18 to 39 age range.

Faith Connections tries to nourish the spiritual lives of the young people and to encourage them to make a difference in the world. It also offers leadership opportunities. Faith Connections is part of Fontbonne Ministries, a not-for-profit charitable organization of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Toronto that responds practically to social needs by nurturing community.
