Sisterhood: a new series on Salt+Light Television

On Pentecost Sunday, Salt and Light Television will premiere the first episode of its new seven-part series Sisterhood – a project that has been underway for the past two years.  Tonight's episode focuses on the Sisters of St. Joseph.


Sisterhood is a special, 7-part series which gives viewers an exclusive look into the daily lives of these remarkable women betrothed to Christ. Vietnam, Philippines, Timor-Leste, Tanzania, Nigeria, Kenya and Uganda are just some of the countries where we visit with sisters who toil tirelessly in the vineyard of the Lord. Educators, health professionals, prayer warriors, catechists, counsellors, ministers to the poor - Sisterhood brings to light the myriad ways in which these wonderful women of the Gospel shine a light on the dark parts of the world. A city built on a hill cannot be hidden, and neither can the infectious love of the sisters who bring hope and zeal to every soul they touch. Watch and be inspired by the beauty and the joy of Sisterhood.

Day in and day out, in every country, religious sisters provide an enormous service to the Church, giving life to the corporal and spiritual works of mercy. Without their prayer, their wisdom or their charity, the Church could scarcely begin to achieve its mission. Yet, the number of sisters in North America and in other countries is dwindling, and at a time when the world desperately needs their charisms.
