What is a Sister?
A religious sister is a woman who has been consecrated to God through the Church, responding to His invitation of love through vows of poverty, chastity and obedience. Each religious sister belongs to a particular religious community, serving God and the Church and world in a distinct way. A religious sister is truly a bride of Jesus Christ (the greatest Lover) and a spiritual mother of an enormous family–over 6.8 billion worldwide!
Do young women still become sisters?
The answer is yes . . . but, why? Simple: they have fallen in love! A religious sister is a bride and a mother who has uncovered the deepest desire of her heart: to follow Christ in a life-long adventure for the Glory of God and the Salvation of Souls!
