Can you have snacks at the convent? Snacks and hospitality go hand in hand. A sisters' community is always welcoming, and we have been on 27 Motherhouse Road Trips that bear that out. Sharing food with one another has more than one purpose. Listen in.

Milestone moment: Join us Monday, June 13, when we celebrate our 1,000th prayer podcast. Praying with the Sisters will be livestreamed at aNunsLife.org/live at 5 p.m. Eastern.

Our celebration begins with prayer that includes Scripture readings and prayer intentions from the audience chat room, as usual. We're planning an after-party then, with a surprise announcement.

We are in the 10th anniversary year of A Nun's Life Ministry, and Praying with the Sisters was our first podcast program, which we started in 2009. We've prayed with thousands of people worldwide since then.

GSR shares clips from our friends at A Nun's Life Ministry, which has a live prayer podcast on Monday (excluding holidays) at 4 p.m. Central Time and other live podcasts throughout the month: "Ask Sister," "Motherhouse Road Trip" and "In Good Faith." Dates and times for the full, live episodes are listed on their program schedule.
