Sisters Christmas Catechism Tickets
One myth that rears its head every couple of years is that the Catholic Church financially supports nuns. And after retirement, these religious workers are compensated with a monthly pension or stipend. This is not true. Catholics nuns, till 1972, were not even on social security to receive support. Sensing the urgency of this issue, Vicki Quade and Maripat Donovan wrote a play about a catholic nun (fictitious) who through her humor teaches the audience about different catechisms of nativity. Even though the main purpose behind this endeavor was to entertain, another, and equally important reason was to shed light on this important issue. Sisters Christmas Catechisms tickets are available and will be a great addition for families and friends during these holiday festivities.
Even though, conditions have marginally improved over the years, nuns and sisters still find themselves mostly ignored by the Catholic Church and the federal government.
How It All Started
Maripat Donovan is a performer, writer and star of the Sisters Christmas Catechism, which is part/offshoot of the award winning comedy Late Night Catechism. The comedy had its first run in 1993. It was at this time Donovan realized the financial plight of religious sisters. With not much help from the Church or the federal government, these religious sisters were left out in the cold when they retired or a church was closed. Realizing the important role religious sisters play, Donovan wrote a comedy that would not only be entertaining, but the proceeds from the voluntary charity collection would go straight to support retired religious sisters.
Playing the role of sister, Donovan has starred in shows all over the United States. These include big metropolitan venues such as Los Angeles, New York and Boston. Donovan has also performed internationally in Dublin, London and Sydney. Having received positive reviews both nationally and internationally, Donovan’s performance is called by many both captivating and entertaining.
