TO BE OR NOT TO BE... A NUN?
The all-new groundbreaking Lifetime(R) series The Sisterhood (#Sisterhood) follows five young women who are considering the life-changing decision of taking religious vows to become Catholic nuns. For the first time ever, cameras were granted access to three convents* where the women live and work together alongside nuns during the discernment phase, the process wherein they decide if they want to formally continue on their holy path.
In observance of the sacred vows of chastity, poverty and obedience, they leave behind everything they have come to love - boyfriends, family members and all their worldly possessions - to see if they have what it takes to become servants of the church and brides of Christ. See them test their devotion when The Sisterhood premieres Tuesday, November 25, at 10PM ET/PT.
Christie, 27, from Glendale, California, likes to rock out with her country music band while still following all the traditional tenets of the church.
Claire, 26, a parish music minister from Joliet, Illinois, was homeschooled throughout her childhood in a devout Catholic home.
Eseni, 23, a former beauty queen and aspiring model from the Bronx, rebelled against the church as a teen but has returned to Catholicism in search of her true calling.
Francesca, 21, is a recent graduate and die-hard believer from New Jersey who struggles with church positions on hot-button issues.
