Women & Spirit: Catholic Sisters in America documents the vital role sisters have played in shaping American life throughout U.S. history.
Narrated by noted network TV news analyst Cokie Roberts, the documentary examines their courageous and at times controversial leadership, exercised during many dramatic moments in U.S. history, begun in a time when women had few rights.
Millions of Catholics and non-Catholics alike have passed through the doors of their schools, colleges, hospitals and social service institutions, but few have known the full, nearly 300-year-old story of American Catholic sisters … until NOW!
