For women of color in New Orleans in the mid-19th century, starting a religious community was a challenge

This Random Nun Clip is from our conversation with Sr. Greta Jupiter about the founding of the Sisters of the Holy Family in New Orleans.

Sr. Henriette Delille was the great-great granddaughter of an African slave, but who was born as a free woman. She was baptized as an infant and went to a segregated school run by the Ursuline sisters. Sr. Jupiter discusses her life and the commuity's co-foundresseses, Juliette Gaudin and Josephine Charles, who were determined to serve God.

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.
