175th at a glance: Testimonials, history, photos and more


"Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow." (Melodie Beattie)

Many voices of gratitude come together in a very special booklet created for our milestone anniversary:  Celebrating 175 years of the Arrival of the Religious Hospitallers of Saint Joseph and the Founding of Hotel Dieu Hospital, Kingston, September 1845 to September 2020.

We invite you to dip into these pages that are packed with thank-you's, testimonials, archival photos and more.

Our deep thanks to Sister Marilyn Larocque for making this commemorative book possible and to all those who contributed their memories, reflections and stories. 

Happy Holidays:

During 2020 with the 175th anniversary celebrations of the arrival of the RHSJ Sisters and the establishment of HDH, the HDH Mission & Values Committee want to wish everyone a Happy Christmas with this fun COVID-19 inspired video produced by some of the members of the Committee.
