We are the Sisters of St. Martha of Antigonish, Nova Scotia, Canada. Wherever we are present, living and serving among people, we are known as The Marthas.

For more than a century we have been an integral part of each community where our daily life unfolds. Currently, we are located throughout Nova Scotia and in Lethbridge, Alberta.

Wherever we are, we commit to living our mission of 'hearing, embracing and responding to the cry for Gospel hospitality'.

Service is a vital part of our lives and it is shaped by current needs and the gifts we have to offer. Our living together in community offers rich opportunity to grow in companionship with God and with each other.

Personal and communal prayer form the central motif of our way of life. As we seek to follow Christ, we experience the beauty and meaning of our choice for this way of life.

Through our relationships and activities, among ourselves and with others, we proclaim religious life as gift to the Church and the world.

"Come and Go Tea"

For 96 years Bethany has been a Sacred Place for many. We invite you to an open house to recall memories, visit some sacred spaces, walk the halls, bid a fond farewell, share stories and enjoy a cup of tea.


Sacred Church Vessels

We the Sisters have in storage numerous sacred church vessels and accessories which we would like to offer to parishes in the Antigonish Diocese.
