This piece was begun as part of a research project funded by the Lilly Endowment on the future of religious life--or of religious orders--in the Catholic church. It was a moving experience to enter into the world of the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth, Kentucky, the first order of nuns founded in the United States, in 1812 on the Kentucky frontier. As always, there is much more we filmed than appears in this short piece. Shot in Hi-8 & Beta by Steve Staley. Edited by Dirk Van Dall.
