Help rename this new film on nuns

 |  NCR Today

A few weeks ago, I had the privilege to fly to Chicago to be a part of a roundtable conversation about the film formerly known as "Sister." The film follows the journey of three Catholic sisters who may be pretty familiar to you: Simone Campbell, Chris Schenk and Jean Hughes.

These women are balancing a deep faith and a thirst for justice with a church hierarchy that, well, isn't always that supportive. The trailer will leave you wanting more. Watch and see.

Take a look inside our August 29 edition. Watch now.

The filmmakers are searching for a new title for their film, and they are hosting an online contest to gather your ideas. Some submissions so far:

  • "Fighting in Good Faith"
  • "Justice Sisters"
  • "When You Pray, Move Your Feet"
  • "Holy Mischief"
  • "Something Sacred is at Stake"
  • "Keepers of the Faith"
  • "Radical Habits"
  • "Avowed Faith"

Got a better idea? Click here to share. Contest ends at midnight Sunday. Prizes include a copy of the film when it is finished and film swag that will, of course, feature the winning title.
