It's a new year in Sister Blogger land ...

As the title of the post says, it's a new year in Sister Blogger Land. And I hope, in 2009, to actually update this page more than once in a blue moon! So, I give you my very belated Sister Blogger Roundup!

This is where I visit a random selection of our member blogs and give you a 2 second version of what's going on so you're inspired to visit them!

A Nun's Life is discussing the movie Doubt, with special guest stars, the Sisters of Charity!

Colwich Novitiate blog has had a change of personnel.

Light through Stained Glass Windows shares links to a variety of benedictine publications.

Monastics on a Journey is on an Elvis kick.

Seeking Sophie is looking forward to 2009 and hoping one highlight is her acceptance to the community! (February will be here before you know it!!!)

Ok, so that's not a complete round up, but it's a start!!!

Welcome new members

First of all, I owe a HUGE apology to the bloggers I am about to mention, because it has taken me 3-6 months to activate your membership in Sister Bloggers. My only excuse is that I was busy finishing the Novitiate, making my first profession of vows and beginning active ministry, all the while trying to keep my own blog up to date. Moderator responsibilities have been on the back burner, but I hope during the new year to do a better job!

Now, on to business! Please welcome and visit our newest Sister Blogger members:
