Nuns to be featured on hit TV show
ATLANTA, March 11, 2013 – The Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist are set to display their impressive biblical knowledge as contestants on Season 2 of the Game Show Network’s hit show “The American Bible Challenge,” which premieres at 9 p.m. ET Thursday, March 21.
A trio of sisters from the Order — Sister Peter Joseph (novice), Sister Maria Suso (professed sister) and Sister Evangeline (novice) — will compete as the Team Sisters of Mary on the show. The Ann Arbor, Michigan-based nuns will use any winnings they receive to provide for the futures of the Sisters in the Order, and to ensure that they are provided for as they advance into retirement.
It won’t be the first time the Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist have appeared on TV; they are well-known for their memorable interviews on the “The Oprah Winfrey Show.”
