Fr. Z notes that The American Bible Challenge gameshow has introduced a “fan favorite” award. Like all the other awards in the gameshow, this involves _money_ donated to the charity of the group’s choice. The Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist are a group of highly educated, smart, learned Dominican sisters who teach at schools and preach the Gospel in works and words. They were founded back in the Eighties and Nineties by three experienced Dominicans who amicably were allowed to leave their own order and community to start a new one, believing that God wished them to do so. Their complete trust in God’s will has been rewarded with incredible growth, with hundreds of novices.
However, all this growth and newness means that practically every spare bit of money earned or donated is spent on new mouths to feed and teach, and there’s not much in the way of savings or endowment yet.
A vote for the Sisters is a vote to support the older sisters in their old age!
So vote every day!
