Nuns and Nones is a new movement that brings together millennials who are religiously unaffiliated and Catholic sisters.

On the show today:

  • Soli Salgado, staff writer for Global Sisters Report
  • Mercy Sr. Judy Carle
  • Dominican Sr. Gloria Marie Jones

Background reading:

  • NCR contributor Loretto Sr. Mary Ann McGivern wrote in December 2017 about her experience in a Nuns and Nones gathering in St. Louis. Benedictine Sr. Linda Romey writes that Nuns and Nones proves that an "open-source" approach to the future of religious life is already happening. Mercy Sr. Judy Cannon was energized by a 2017 Nuns and Nones meeting: "We are mutually inspired in our close connection."
  • Ahead of the 2018 Synod of Bishops on the outh, John Vitek of St. Mary's Press recognized Nuns and Nones as a positive example of "charting new ways of forming a common religious and human experience."
  • Watch this space (and globalsistersreport.org) for reported stories on Nuns and Nones, coming in January and February 2019.
