A project called Nuns and Nones moved religion-free millennials into a convent.

Sarah Jane Bradley was an unmarried, "spiritual but not religious" professional in her early 30s, with a rowdy group of friends and a startup when she moved out of her communal house and into a convent.

A bunch of friends went with her.

They called the project Nuns and Nones, and they were the "nones" — progressive millennials, none of whom were practicing Roman Catholics. Intended to be a pilot project, the unusual roommate situation with the Sisters of Mercy would last for six months.


The idea was

The millennials arrive


For the sisters

Chastity, poverty, obedience

Passing on mercy

A farewell, for now
