Sisters celebrate 19 years this weekend

by Sister Ophelia Onassis - Special to the SGN

On July 14, 1996, seven people, dressed in stylized nun's habit, dunked themselves in the waters of Lake Washington - baptizing themselves The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, Abbey of St. Joan! These six Sisters reaffirmed their vow to promulgate universal joy and to expiate stigmatic guilt throughout the Pacific Northwest.

From very humble beginnings, the Abbey of St. Joan has grown into a group of very diverse individuals bound together by our shared vows, and our deep commitment to our Mission Statement. Our vows bind us to Sisters throughout the country and the world.

On Saturday, July 18, 2015, from 6-8 p.m., at The Cuff Complex, 1533 13th Ave. at E. Pine St., the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, Abbey of St. Joan will celebrate our 19th anniversary! Please join us as we renew our vow to our community and distribute grants to community organizations who are in need. Our granting fund is funded by generous contributions from the community throughout the calendar year. This year, we collected (and will disburse) over $7,200.00! We received 28 grant applications this year, and wish we could have funded all of them. Each of the groups do important work in our community. This year's grant recipients include Navos/POW, AHAT - AIDS Housing Association of Tacoma, Q Card, BABES/YWCA, POZSeattle, and People's Harm Reduction Alliance.

The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, Abbey of St. Joan are an order of 21st Century nuns, dedicated to the promulgation of universal joy and the expiation of stigmatic guilt. We work to raise money for AIDS charities, fight for Queer rights and visibility, do safer sex outreach and strive diligently to maintain our senses of humor, never taking ourselves so seriously we forget to have fun. We gladly welcome all races, creeds, genders and sexual orientations.
