This chapter presents oral history interviews with five nuns who have chosen to live in the present: Sister Catherine Bertrand, executive director of the National Religious Vocation Conference; Sister Ancilla Maloney, a Sister Servant of the Immaculate Heart of Mary from Scranton, Pennsylvania who now lives in an intercommunity house in the Bronx with other women religious and teaches in an inner-city high school there; Mary Jo Leddy, a Canadian whose book, Reweaving Religious Life, has had a very strong influence on many American nuns and who now lives with a group of refugees and other volunteers at Romero House in Toronto; Sister Patricia Marks, a full-time director of religious education in a suburban New Jersey parish who also works as a marriage and family therapist as well as a certified divorce mediator; and Sister Virginia Johnson, who is affiliated with Visitation House, a large private home in New York City. The narratives capture the women's experiences over the past fifty years, beginning in the 1960s.
