Young Nuns in the news


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!

  1. Kelly Edmonds is now Sr Susanna and comes from our local parish of Holy Name, Wahroogna in Northern Sydney. She is one of 5, both parents are medical doctors. Last month her father became a third order Dominican. She gives us great hope that their is still a great place for women in the church.

  2. I love seeing young nuns! And I especially love that picture “Jesus proposed: I said yes!” haha so true
