Although they shared religious affiliation under the mantle of the Roman Catholic Church, nuns and sisters represented a broad assortment of women. This chapter discusses the ways in which nuns and sisters added to the race, class, and gender complexity that marked all areas of the West. It discusses mission work in the United States, immigration, and the spread of congregations in the United States.

Keywords:   Roman Catholic, nuns, sisters, race, class, gender, United States, immigration, congregations
