Incidentally, two happening women's orders are the Nashville, Tennessee Dominicans and the Benedictines of Ryde, Isle of Wight. Interestingly, St. Cecilia is the patron of both these houses. Meanwhile, their novices are young. I heart young novices. There's nothing sweeter in the entire world than a 20-something novice, except maybe an 18 year old novice.
Everyone who knows a woman in, or thinking of entering, the Tennesee Dominicans or the Benedictines of St. Cecilia's Abbey, Ryde, report in the comm box!
