  • With so many religious orders to choose from, how do I begin to make sense of them?
  • Is it possible to become a nun and to own an orphanage?
  • Is it true that not all religious orders profess the vows of poverty, celibacy and obedience? Aren’t these evangelical counsels required for religious life?
  • Is the nun in my soon-to-be published novel a plausible character?
  • What is too young or too old to become a sister?
  • Do I need a visa to enter a religious community in a country in which I do not have citizenship?
