A Nun’s Life Ministry visit to the Congrégation de Notre Dame

A Nuns' Life Ministry

A Nun’s Life Ministry visits the Congrégation de Notre Dame on a Motherhouse Road Trip, Wednesday, April 18, 2018, in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island—Canada. The road trip combines social media and in-person events in innovative ways to engage with people about God, faith, and religious life.

A highlight of the road trip is a podcast that is live-streamed (audio and video) over the Internet. Two Sisters of the Congrégation de Notre Dame will join the host, Sister Maxine Kollasch, IHM, to talk about topics such as discernment, prayer, spirituality, and more. There is also a live chat room where online listeners interact with each other and the sisters during the podcast.

People from across the U.S., Canada and many other countries watch the podcast and join the chat room using their computers and mobile devices. The podcast airs at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time / 6:00 p.m. Atlantic Time at aNunsLife.org/LIVE. 

The A Nun’s Life team uses social media to inform people about the Motherhouse Road Trip and acquaint them with the host congregation. By posting on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, and other social media, they share stories, photos, and conversation. After the podcast, the team continues to share the experience online and encourages people to stay in touch with the host congregation.

The purpose of the Motherhouse Road Trip series, which is made possible by a grant from the GHR Foundation, is to help connect Catholic sisters and nuns with an online community that is supportive of vocations and deeply interested in the lives and works of women religious.  A Nun’s Life Ministry encourages people to understand their life as a vocation; to help in this, A Nun’s Life brings the tradition of religious life—in areas such as discernment, prayer, and spirituality—into conversation with people’s everyday lives.

A Nun’s Life Ministry (NL) is an internet-based ministry at aNunsLife.org and on social media. The ministry was founded in 2006 on the belief that each person is called by God to a vocation that enriches the individual and the world. A Nun’s Life fosters a culture of vocation online by engaging with people in 150 countries about spirituality, discernment, religious life, and many other topics. It does this in highly interactive and pastoral ways, using blogs, livestreaming podcasts and chat, and social media events. A Nun’s Life also works with religious institutes on using online presence for relationship building. The ministry is based in Toledo, Ohio.
