Sisters Go to Final Round of Bible Contest

by Steve Ray on April 18, 2013

The three Bible experts from the Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist, have secured a spot in the May 23 finale of “The American Bible Challenge” game show.

Now, the sisters are hoping to win the “fan favorite” contest by winning the most votes from viewers.

From today through Sunday, May 19, fans of the American Bible Challenge can go to gsntv.com to vote for their favorite team, which can potentially win $10,000 for the team’s charity.

If the sisters win the fan favorite competition, it will be another means for the sisters to raise funds to help their aging women religious.

The voting results can be tracked here: http://gsntv.com/shows/the-american-bible-challenge/fan-favorite/?results=1&voted=1200. The team with the most votes at the end of the voting period will receive $10,000 for their charity and earn the title of The American Bible Challenge Fan Favorite. The Fan Favorite winner will be announced during the finale of The American Bible Challenge on Thursday, May 23. Limit one vote per person, per day.

The three nuns, Sisters Peter Joseph, Maria, and Evangeline, are part of a community of nuns founded only in 1997 in Michigan. Now the group has more than 120 sisters, many of whom are in their 20s.

Sister Peter Joseph spoke with ZENIT about the experience of evangelizing through a game show.

Steve,
The web link to gsntv is not formatted correctly. There’s an extra “http//” in the middle of it.

STEVE RAY HERE: Thanks! Fixed.

If a group of Catholic nuns, especially young ones, can’t win this game, there’s something very wrong with this picture!

Hi Steve,
Will it allow other people from outside USA to vote?
