You’ll laugh, you’ll learn, you’ll cry, you’ll be touched as Sr. Phyllis Stein explains it all to you.
Sr. Phyllis Stein the fragrant joined the Order in May of 1994, and took vows of full profession in April of 1995. Since that time, she has been the Mistress of Sistory (Archivist) and has spent tireless hours hunting down and digging up as much dirt about this Order of 21st Century Nuns as possible. Originally founded as an Order of gay male nuns, the Sisters are now comprised of gay, lesbian, bisexual, heterosexual and transgendered men and women.
