An intimate glimpse into the lives of the Catholic Sisters of Manitoba, this documentary is a testament to the deep and permanent imprint they have left and continue to leave in our communities. Stories of the sisterhood and their ground-breaking work for social justice are laced with humour, feminism and compassion.

Soul Sisters is part of an initiative to acknowledge, commemorate and celebrate the Catholic Sisters who have served Manitoba since 1844. The tribute has been led by the Catholic Health Association of Manitoba.
