Summary of today’s show: In the first part of our show, Scot Landry and Fr. Mark O’Connell welcome Sr. Marian Batho and Sr. Pat Boyle to discuss this weekend’s second collection for retired religious sisters. They point out that in the past religious sisters did not have sufficient retirement funds and didn’t pay into Social Security until 1972. Even today, each active religious sister works to provide for the needs of four or more retired sisters, including housing and medical needs. More than 2,900 sisters who have provided a combined 54,000 years of service receive funds from the collection in the Archdiocese of Boston.

In our second segment, Andy Lavallee from Live the Fast joins us to discuss his ministry and their upcoming Advent Fasting Retreat on November 30.
