The all-new groundbreaking Lifetime® series "The Sisterhood: Becoming Nuns" (#TheSisterhood) follows five young women who are considering the life-changing decision of taking religious vows to become Catholic nuns. For the first time ever, cameras were granted access to three convents* where the women live and work together alongside nuns during the discernment phase, the process wherein they decide if they want to formally continue on their holy path.
In observance of the sacred vows of chastity, poverty and obedience, they leave behind everything they have come to love—boyfriends, family members and all their worldly possessions—to see if they have what it takes to become servants of the church and brides of Christ. See them test their devotion when The Sisterhood premieres Tuesday, November 25, at 10PM ET/PT.
*Convents visited include: The Carmelites for the Aged and Infirm in Germantown, New York; The Daughters of St. Mary of Providence in Chicago, Illinois; and The Sisters of St. Joseph the Worker in Walton, Kentucky.
"The Sisterhood: Becoming Nuns" is produced by Hot Snakes Media and executive produced by Shannon Evangelista and Eric Evangelista ("Breaking Amish: LA," "Breaking Amish"), along with Lifetime’s Eli Lehrer, Mary Donahue and Colleen Conway Grogan. Six episodes of "The Sisterhood: Becoming Nuns" have been ordered for this season.
