Discover how a life dedicated to serving God makes the world a much better place.

We recently shared stories about clergy impressing us during the pandemic, so now we’d like to introduce you to just some of the remarkable religious sisters who’ve dedicated their lives to helping us both spiritually and practically.

These women have proven not only how caring and generous they are with their time, but also how talented they are. So take a few minutes this weekend to discover just some of the great works our religious sisters carry out in God’s name.

Living a life of joy

This wonderful video highlights not only the work of these religious, but their infectious joy in their calling.

Devoting their entire adulthood to God

Reaching out to the vulnerable

These sisters combined medical skills with their faith to go out and treat those in need with their mobile medical unit.

Getting technical

A group of Dominicans showed how they could find solutions to their energy needs by actually creating enough electricity for their order, with a surplus to sell to the electricity board.

Inspiring others in extraordinary services

This French nun was able to reach an impressive 117 years of age having combated COVID-19. While becoming the second oldest woman in the world is a feat in itself, what really inspired us was how she found joy in life.
