"Talking to our current and prospective candidates in their 20’s, we wanted to know the best way to reach their peers– other young women who may be interested in knowing more about us, and possibly joining us,” Sr. Julie Ann said. “We want to present our life as a viable option. Personal invitation is always best; however, we became convinced that real conversations can begin by using the language of images and music.”
