THE BASILICA SHRINE OF THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION AND A NEW BRANCH OF THE SISTERS OF MERCY
CNN has produced a very nice piece on the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. You can see it by PRESSING THIS LINK TO THEIR WEBSITE AND TO THE SHRINE.
The Sisters of Mercy have a new branch that is very true to their original charism and is in the midst of a vocation "come back." Communities like these show the Church that vocations to women's religious orders is possible when there is a good reason for joining and a distinctive lifestyle that is different than what one can do outside of the religious order.
