Dear friends,

THANK YOU for your generosity towards our Gospel to the True North Renovation Project! 

Because of you, we have raised $400,000 to date: enough to begin Phase One of our renovation. Our exterior brickwork and waterproofing are underway and our roof replacement is scheduled. These much-needed improvements will make Pauline Books & Media a more functional, accessible, and beautiful space for people to encounter Christ and grow in relationship with Him—and they would not have been possible without you. Thank you!

Here's what's next:

Phase Two of our renovation involves installing an elevator (and building a shaft) to improve accessibility and help us move heavy shipments between floors more easily; renovating office space for our sisters and employees; refurbishing guest rooms so we can welcome young women who want to discern religious life with our community; and updating basement plumbing.

We need to raise $1M to make these updates a reality. Can you help us reach this goal?


As Daughters of St. Paul, our mission is to "live and give Christ" to all we meet. Our book centre and Eucharistic Chapel is one way we announce the truth, hope, and beauty of Christ to the men and women who walk through our doors. By giving toward our building renovation, you will help create a "sacred space" in Toronto where people can meet Jesus Christ, grow in faith, and find quality Catholic media to help them share this Faith with others.  

We cannot do this without you. You are truly our partners in the new evangelization, and we hold you in our grateful prayers!

Your sisters in Christ,

The Daughters of St. Paul
