These obituary notices were submitted from parishes throughout the diocese. Ferdinand Benedictines counter L. A. Times article A recent Los Angeles Times article which indicated that nuns appear to be dying out as an institution is not the experi- ence of the Sisters of St. Bene- dict in Ferdinand. The commu- nity has statistics to back up their claim that there is a resurgence of interest in reli- gious life, contrary to the per- ceived notion that nuns are a dying breed. The community of 243 mem- bers at Ferdinand averages 50 new inquiries a month, accord- ing to vocations director, Bene- dictine Sister Rose Mary Rex- ing. She said that of those 50, about 10 "express a desire to keep in touch with us in order to decide if this way of life is for them." Five years ago, only 13 women were part of the Bene- dictine Life program for women who are seriously con- sidering a call to religious life. Today, there are 153 women in the program. In the past two years, six women, ranging in age from 22 to 43, have made the decision to join the community at Ferdinand. II I I AUTO TOPS. SEAT COVERS .
