It is the purpose of this web site to help guide you through any questions you may have have on our religious life as a nun. Many of us have spent the majority of our lives in this avocation and we wish to pass on our knowledge to you. The life of a nun is a rewarding one and one that very few know a lot about.

Whether your a student searching for information for school. Or a relative of a loved one who is a nun and your trying to understand her life or even a person who feels a calling and is trying to find answers we are sure that no where else will you find more compelling information. We have searched the web, spoken to countless people and have compiled a list of many of the top questions we found. With our vast life experience we have answered these questions in a straight forward way and kept the answers easy for you to read on our posts page. Feel free to comment and ask questions about what you read. We are also going to continually explore new questions and to update our blog where you will find information relating to our community life.
