    Adopt a Nun


    A Roman Catholic religious order in Connecticut, the Salesian Sisters of St. John Bosco, has raised $5 million dollars so far through its Adopt-a-Sister program.

    The sisters are a teaching order without the support of a bishop or a diocese, so they must raise money to care for the 45 nuns who live at their retirement home.

    The money has been used to help build a retirement home for aging nuns, some of whom are in their 90s.

    Donors to the program get an adoption certificate, the sister's picture and a promise of daily prayer. Some people correspond by e-mail with the nuns they've adopted.One donor in Connecticut has adopted the nun who was her second-grade teacher.

    What a brilliant adaptation to engage today's culture.
