Sister Twisted Fister resigned from the Abbey of the Divine Wood after it lost its mission status. She gathered a new flock from former Abbey of the Divine Wood members and new interested aspirants, and they first met on January 19, 2015. The group named themselves the Toronto Sisters of the Jubilant Order of York (J.O.Y.). 


On March 21, 2015, the Toronto Sisters of JOY manifested for the first time at Spearhead Toronto Leather and Denim Club's 35th Anniversary Dinner followed by its first Street Ministry. On June 15, 2015, the group achieved mission status through the UNPC just in time for Toronto Pride 2015. After its first Pride Parade, the Toronto Sisters of JOY appeared in photos on the front page of Canada's largest newspaper, the Toronto Star. 


- On June 7, 2015, the Toronto Sisters attended one of the rallies at Queen’s Park protesting the wonderfully inclusive new Sexual Education curriculum that goes into effect in Ontario that September. Along with former MPP Reverend Dr. Cheri Di Novo and her executive assistant holding a rainbow flag, the Toronto Sisters were there to provide an alternate viewpoint. Although parents say their protests have nothing to do with homophobia, the Toronto Sisters’ presence revealed something different. The event was documented by a team from Daily Xtra including producer Kevin O’Keefe (who made the Sister Documentary Bad Habits). Subsequent coverage of this event in the news featured confrontations between the protestors and the Sisters, which was shared worldwide.
