NunRun aims to be right on the money

You might be surprised to learn about one of the big issues in the world of vocations. It was highlighted in yesterday's Tribune, which looked especially at the case of Chicagoan Alicia Torres, who is trying to "run past" this particular obstacle. (What a surprise it was to have the name of someone we know pop up at the head of a full-page story!)One thing Alicia doesn't know (yet) is how hard it is to run in a habit.

Haha!! Sending joy Sr. Anne--I have visions of getting a "technical" habit made :-)

Is there any way to contribute to the "Nun Run?"

Sr Anne said...

I would imagine you could contact Alicia through St. Mary of the Angels parish or perhaps through the Archdiocese of Chicago's Vicar for Religious.

Or through Sr Helena at http://hellburns.blogspot.com; she has Alicia's info.

I had never considered the problem of trying to enter into life as a sister when you're burdened by student loans! Good for Alicia! (or "Alica" as the video caption says?)
