We pledge ourselves to promote Universal Joy, to expiate Stigmatic Guilt, and to serve our Community, our Fellow Sisters, and the Ministry of Perpetual Indulgence.
Who We Are
We are a modern Order of Nuns, comprising of people of all gender associations, all spiritual affiliations, and all proclivities to do good works.
The Boston Sisters are a House of The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence™, Inc. (www.thesisters.org), which was founded in San Francisco on Easter Sunday, 1979 and now embodies more than 2000 Sisters worldwide.
The five aspects of our Practice include Service, Education, Activism, Entertainment, and Ministry. We believe that people should be encouraged to live their lives in any way that brings them the most amount of satisfaction and joy, without guilt or shame, so long as they do harm to no one. This underlying philosophical tradition of pure non-judgmentalism informs every aspect of our Practice.
Our Public Manifestation
We are the sacred clowns of our community, taking a stand on the edge of what our society defines as “normal”. All of those who walk beside us are by default closer to the center of the tent of inclusion.
