Sister Evangeline and Sister Maria Suso high five on "The American Bible Challenge" game show


Three sisters from the Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist, from Ann Arbor, Mich., are set to take on Christian bikers, NFL football players, rabbis and more on the second season of the game show "The American Bible Challenge." The show premiers on Game Show Network March 21 at 9 p.m.

Through trivia and other challenges, Sisters Evangeline, Maria Suso and Peter Joseph will have their Scripture knowledge put to the test as they compete against 17 other teams to receive $100,000 for charity. The Dominican Sisters – or "Team Sisters of Mary" – would use their winnings to assist in the retirement of elderly Dominican sisters.

"The American Bible Challenge" is hosted by comedian Jeff Foxworthy and will feature musician and producer Kirk Franklin as musical co-host. For more information, visit gsntv.com. You can even test your Scripture knowledge with The American Bible Challenge Game.

These Sisters are so joyful in their vocations!! There was a cute video online earlier this week showing the nuns at the time of the election of Pope Francis. The news spread that there was ‘white smoke’, and the nuns came running from all over their convent to the TV room and watched the new Pope come out onto the balcony. They were so very excited, and they all bowed their heads in prayer for him. Then several of them ran and started ringing the bell of the convent.
