Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence
The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence is a leading-edge Order of queer nuns. Since our first appearance in San Francisco on Easter Sunday, 1979, the Sisters have devoted ourselves to community service, ministry and outreach to those on the edges, and to promoting human rights, respect for diversity and spiritual enlightenment. We believe all people have a right to express their unique joy and beauty and we use humor and irreverent wit to expose the forces of bigotry, complacency and guilt that chain the human spirit.
Throughout the year, Sisters engage in a whirlwind of events from tawdry to swellegant. We’re often in need of helping hands, willing bodies, and ready smiles to help us accomplish our work. We guarantee you’ll go home with tired feet, amazing photos, and story or two. Volunteering with us is also the first step in becoming a Sister, and a great way to get a feel for the work, play, and ministry that are our joy.
