Interesting Fact - Women in the UK

According to the Catholic Church, the number of women in Britain choosing to become nuns has trebled over the last five years.

(However, I doubt this is some kind of religious revival in the UK: In 2004, only seven women opted to become nuns, this rose to 15 in 2009 and 45 in 2014.

So, why the increase?  Fr Christopher Jamison, director of the Vocations Office of the Catholic church, said: “There is a gap in the market for meaning in our culture, and one of the ways in which women may find that meaning is through religious life.” 

A gap in the market? My how times change. Personally, I think the movie Sister Act might have played a role too.)
