These tweets are so cute! 😂
Religious sisters across Twitter continued their annual #SuperBowlintheConvent trend during the 2022 Super Bowl between the Los Angeles Rams and the Cincinnati Bengals on Sun., Feb. 13.
The Catholic sisters with the Daughters of St. Paul began the entertaining tradition after they trended during the 2017 Super Bowl. Sr. Theresa Aletheia, FSP, then invited other nuns on Twitter to participate.
