Overview
Sisters Are Doing What?!! is not only an enjoyable and fascinating read; it also provides insights into the development of religious life in that last two centuries. For all who are interested in the varied ministries of contemporary religious women. Prepare to be astonished! In Sisters Are Doing What?!! Great Stories about Religious Women Today, you will meet some amazing women and their communities who have, over the past two hundred years, gradually and courageously broken away from the contemplative model of religious life to meet contemporary needs. We find the example of Blessed Margaret of Castello who was blind and hunchbacked and went to visit prisoners and the sick poor of her village, as well as Sr. Ignatia who surmounted many difficulties to establish a small ward to treat alcoholics in St. Thomas Hospital, then a wing in St. Vincent Charity Hospital. Sr. Anne Marie Weinglass became a real estate agent to help first-time homeowners move into their new homes sooner, as well as to be knowledgeable about the ministry of providing shelter for the poor. Sr. Joy Manthey, CSJ, a third generation river boat captain, is chaplain to the Mississippi River sailors. Sr. Elaine Roulet, CSJ, has improved the conditions in which children visit their mothers in prison. Sisters Are Doing What?!! is not only an enjoyable and fascinating read; it also provides insights into the development of religious life in that last two centuries.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
An insight into contemporary nunhood  May 26, 2004
Sister Regina Coll explores the lives of today's Sisters in the Roman Catholic Church. They are a far cry from the stereotypes of the Bells of St. Mary's day. Using an engaging anecdotal style, the author especially lifts up the lives of prison chaplains, ecologically inspired farmers, lobbyists for social justice in Washington, DC, to name but a few of the ministries she explores.
