Final Vows chronicles the life of a cloistered order of nuns at Santa Rita Abbey, a Cistercian monastery in the high desert of Arizona.

The nuns, who take a vow that binds them to remain in the community they entered for life, candidly share their joys and struggles. While each woman’s journey is unique, they all felt a call and chose to join this community of prayer and work. 

Main themes: contemplative life, prayer, faith, community, aging, life choices.

Core audience: People of faith, students of theology. people with a spiritual practice, small communities, environmentalists.  

What we’re doing: One month exploratory outreach and consultation.
