Three religious sisters are participating in a unique evangelization effort by competing on a Bible trivia game show in hopes of supporting their community.
"This isn't something we would normally do, but when the opportunity arose, Mother (Assumpta Long) discerned that it would be good not only for the benefit of our community, but also for the New Evangelization," Sr. Maria Suso of the Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist told CNA March 15.
Team Sisters of Mary will be featured on the March 21 season premiere of The American Bible Challenge, hosted by comedian Jeff Foxworthy on Game Show Network.
Facing off against Team Preachin' Divas, a group of women dedicated to inner city outreach in Oakland, Calif., and Team Anointed Ink, a group of Texas-based tattoo artists who cover up questionable body art with religious symbols, the Sisters competed for a chance to win $100,000 for their charity of choice.
