Documentary: “The Incredible Vanishing Sisters”

June 17, 2022

This CBC GEM one hour documentary about the Presentation and Mercy Sisters of Newfoundland and Labrador was produced by Kenneth Harvey, a Canadian novelist, journalist and film-maker. It premiered on CBC Gem on 15 March 2022.

“The Presentation Sisters and Sisters of Mercy have stopped accepting new nuns into their orders in Newfoundland and Labrador. In the years to come, both orders will disappear as we know them. Their orders have transformed into vehicles for social justice and environmental issues but now there are no longer young women who have the calling.”
