Change of Habit

January 9, 2014

The population of Catholic nuns in Western PA and across the United States is a quarter of what it was in the late 1960s. But even with their numbers dwindling and local convents shuttered, the revered Sisters aren't complaining or giving up, they're actually reinventing themselves. WQED’s Michael Bartley takes you to several local orders of religious women to show you where they're working and how they see the future of Sisters.
