Elizabeth Visits the Abbey


Elizabeth, a 12-year-old American, visits Ireland with her Irish mother and an American father. While there, she visits her aunt, the abbess of a Cistercian abbey in County Cork who tells her about the history of women in the Church.

Young women are increasingly asking about their roles in the world and in the Church. In Elizabeth Visits the Abbey, the positive depiction of marriage, of the single life, and of religious life added to the historical discussion of women in the Church lend themselves to wider conversations in the classroom and at home.
