Blogs by Catholic Nuns

Catholic sisters and nuns are blogging! Check out the variety of religious communities and sisterly voices! Please let us know if you have any suggestions or updates. Our criteria for including blogs on this list are as follows: the blog must 1) be written by a Catholic sister or nun or by a woman formally in the process of formation, 2) not be anonymous -- we need to know which community to which the blogger belongs, 3) be currently active -- posts within the last month.
