A booming Southern Catholic vocation

Sometimes we don't talk enough about women's vocations - the call to the religious life. Well here is a group that you should know about: the Dominican Sisters of St. Cecilia, better known as the Nashville Dominicans. They are bursting at the seams with vocations. The average age of a Nashville Dominican is 36 - four decades younger than the average age of nuns nationwide. They've been covered by many in the national media (most recently, by NPR but even Oprah has done a feature on them), and they're the topic of a new documentary by Salt and Light TV out of Canada.

Here's a sneak peak at the new documentary. Looks very promising. Enjoy.
