As the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence get ready to celebrate their 40th anniversary in April (on Easter at Dolores Park, no less), we kick off our Sisters at 40 series with Sister Roma (technically, Sister There's No Place Like Rome). Hear the story of growing up an All-American, class president, preppy, Catholic-school-going young man who visited San Francisco for his first time while a junior in college, and it changing his life. Roma, aka, #theMostPhotographedNunInTheWorld, takes us right up to the moment when she became a nun with the famed San Francisco group.
This podcast also celebrates Sister Stories, a book by Ep. 13 storyteller Heather Jacks due to hit the shelves next month. Join us Thursday for Part 2, when Roma will talk about becoming a nun and some of the great charity works that the Sisters do.
We recorded this podcast at the Cinch Saloon in February 2019.
