A Nun's Life Ministry
aNunsLife.org is founded on the belief that each person is called by God to a vocation that enriches the individual and benefits the world. Our mission is to help people discover and grow in their vocation by engaging questions about God, faith, and religious life.

In this Random Nun Clip, we talk with Sisters Eileen McKenzie and Katie Mitchell about the FSPA's 130+ years of perpetual adoration! Hear the full Ask Sister podcast episode at AS182.
