Dubuque’s Got Sisters Interested in religious life? Convents offer tour in April


Are you a woman interested in exploring religious life? If so, sign up for “Dubuque’s Got Sisters!” and prepare for a unique experience. Join Dubuque-area Catholic sisters for a 24-hour tour of four tri-state area convents to share life through praying, dining, and storytelling. Local transportation will be provided, and there is no fee to attend.

The evening will begin with prayer and overnight hospitality on Friday at Sinsinawa Mound, Wisconsin, with the Dominican Sisters of Sinsinawa. On Saturday, the group will journey to Dubuque, Iowa, and visit the Sisters of the Presentation in the morning, enjoy lunch with the Sisters of St. Francis, and then spend dinnertime with the Sisters of Charity of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

“We are glad to jointly offer this opportunity to women who are interested in religious life. Sisters in the Dubuque area collaborate in many ways to offer service, speak out for justice issues, and pray together. It seemed quite natural to come together to offer Dubuque’s Got Sisters as well,” said Sister Lou Anglin, BVM, who will accompany the tour group along with sisters from the area congregations.

The Dubuque’s Got Sisters event begins Friday, April 29 at 4:30 p.m. and ends Saturday, April 30 at 6:30 p.m. To register, or for more details, contact Sister Lou Anglin, BVM, langlin@bvmcong.org or (563) 588-2351. Dubuque’s Got Sisters is sponsored by the Sisters of Charity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Sisters of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Dubuque Franciscan Sisters, and Sinsinawa Dominican Sisters.
