"More young women are entering convents. How they are changing the sisterhood"
[Local all-stars - the Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist (here in Ann Arbor) - get a well-deserved mention:]"Sister Joseph Andrew Bogdanowicz, vocation director ... credits e-mail to some extent with what can only be described as her order's astonishing growth. Founded in 1997 as an offshoot of a large convent, the Sisters now have 73 members with an average age of 24. In 2006, 15 women entered as postulants. Next August, more than 20 women are scheduled to join them. The order is fund raising for a new convent for them to live in. "We cannot build fast enough. It's incredible," says Bogdanowicz, 50."
