Whether you’re a long-time fan or just recently learned about them while watching Tales from the City, we are sure you will all agree that the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence are a sight to behold, and they are joining us for breakfast!
Who are the Sisters?
They exist as an order of 21st century queer nuns who welcome a broad spectrum of genders, sexual orientations, and religious/spiritual traditions. Through humor, irreverent wit, and glamorous manifestation, they seek to transform social structures that continue to oppress the vulnerable in our society. Through introspection and community service, they support the spiritual and personal development of our members and those they serve. They honour the ‘sistory’ of the world-wide Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence by working to improve the lives of those affected by HIV. They also honour Vancouver’s present-day reality through work to alleviate and end homelessness and provide support to groups and projects that might otherwise go unacknowledged. They bring together diverse community groups who are striving towards similar goals.
The Sisters will be joining us for our Heart Your Parts Breakfast fundraiser on Friday, September 20th. Don’t have your tickets yet? You can get them now by clicking here!
