'Life as a Sister'--A Unique Website Goes Live
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
BALTIMORE, MD (April 16, 2014) - The Sisters of Bon Secours, an international religious congregation of Catholic sisters based in Marriottsville, Md., announce the launch of a unique website, www.LifeAsASister.org. “Imagine a Sister’s Life” allows single Catholic women to imagine what it’s like to be a nun and discover if this could be their life’s call.
Bon Secours vocation director, Sister Pat Dowling, CBS, notes, "At a time when women can be anything they desire, we want them to know that religious life as a sister is an exciting option! Our site invites women from all walks of life, who are passionate about their faith, and who wish to use their unique gifts in helping others to explore, ask questions, imagine, and listen to the voice of God in their own hearts."
"Imagine a Sister's Life" speaks to women in a relational way while also using interactive tools to visualize, research, and inquire about a way of life as a sister. Sisters narrate various aspects of their life through high quality videos. In addition to the standard blog and chat room found on sites, a wide array of multimedia tools allow women to journey at their own pace with amazing religious women, while helping them to discover their own call in life.
The website, built especially for smartphones, provides: resources to understand a vocation; questions to ask throughout the process; a way to explore how to use professional talents in ministry; an introduction to the various ways religious communities live out their call; and suggestions for prayer, spiritual direction, self-exploration, and more. The Sisters of Bon Secours will also add other features to assist visitors, based on feedback.
These are exciting times in which Pope Francis is promoting a mission to the world that religious sisters have fulfilled since their inception. There are many women who desire to respond in faith with radical commitment to the Gospel, and who want to share Christ’s message of healing, compassion, and liberation with those in need. “Imagine a Sister's Life” can help them imagine what God’s dream looks like for them!
The Sisters of Bon Secours are delighted to share this web resource with women exploring their path in life, and look to our many partners in ministry to help spread the word. We encourage you to check out LifeAsASister.org, include a link on your own website and share it with others through social media, directories, and blogs.
