Did You Know …
… there is a difference between Sisters and Nuns?
Though the terms are often used interchangeably, nuns historically take solemn vows and live a life of prayer and contemplation in a monastery or convent, while sisters take simple vows and live an active vocation of prayer and charitable works in areas such as education and healthcare.
Both nuns and sisters are women religious and constitute a most beautiful way of serving Jesus Christ and all souls in the Church. They both fulfill essential tasks in the Church. While a nun is not a sister, both are addressed as “Sister.”
In all cases, nuns and sisters, orders and congregations, are manifestations of the charisms of the Holy Spirit to enrich the people of God.
