Sister Cyrilline Biel, 86, entered the Sisters of Saints Cyril and Methodius in 1950. The community’s motherhouse in Danville, Pennsylvania, was a long way from her childhood home of Whiting, Indiana. “I’d never seen any mountains until I came here,” she remembers.

“There’s not much to say about me,” asserts 89-year-old Sister Margaret Kob, with the kind of gentle humility born from a life of contemplation.

The stage brought Sister Donna Marie Ivanko, 81, to religious life, and now she uses the stage to minister in that life.
