Nuns Get It!

The NBC nightly news just finished, and I'm sorry to say I missed most of the final story, thinking it would be the usual ending puff piece. The gist of the story is that there is a growing number of young women expressing an interest in serving God by joining the convent.

A convent in Michigan is going high tech, using a website to help with recruiting. The nun in charge of recruiting, Sister Joseph Andrew, was interviewed , and I just happened to be walking past the t.v. when she said, "When I travel, I take my Blackberry with me because young women want a response quickly." (no direct link: see "More U.S. Women Joining the Convent" at MSNBC)

Nuns get it! What is taking education so long?

As an aside, I do find it interesting that the ad on MSNBC leading into the piece is for Blackberry devices.
