The Benedictine Sisters of Virginia needed help in recruiting more nuns to their order. We developed a set of four bookmarks to be distributed in the prayerbooks of Richmond’s Catholic Churches. The bookmarks seed spiritually provocative ideas that could lead to consideration of joining the Order of Saint Benedict, or at least, a more spiritually aware orientation.
In addition to the bookmarks, ToMarket has worked to gain media attention for Sister Vicki Ix’s cooking show, “Nun Like
It.” She was featured in the Richmond Times-Dispatch’s Food & Cooking section and also recorded a cooking show with food editor Bill Lohmann that was featured on the RTD website. Sister Vicki also received front-page coverage in Sunday’s Flair section for her social networking prowess. She credits a number of new contacts to this effort!
