Sisters celebrate with Sinful 2nd Sundays

by Shaun Knittel - SGN Associate Editor

Sinful 2nd Sunday
Neighbours
Every second Sunday


Nobody does it quite like the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, the Abbey of St. Joan. They can sell a roll of raffle tickets or brighten any party faster than you can say a Hail Mary. Larger than life and covered in all their painted glory, these nuns have got it going on.

Now, in collaboration with Neighbours Nightclub, the Sisters are bringing their habits - pun intended - to the stage every second Sunday of the month for Sinful 2nd Sunday from 6-10 p.m.

'The concept behind Sinful 2nd Sunday is one of perpetual fundraising,' Sister Stella Standing told Seattle Gay News. 'The show is a great way to have fun and raise money for our grants cycle.'

This year, according to Stella, the Sisters hope to raise upwards of $30,000. Last year, the Abbey awarded over $21,000 to local non-profits.

Sinful 2nd Sundays is a twist on a regular nightclub cabaret infused with Sisters flair: there's a little bit of everything - song, dance, comedy - and a lot of fun. Lo and behold, it's Sinful 2nd Sunday!

'We have a primary cast of Sisters comprised of Sisters Faye Latio, Daya Reckoning, VixXxen, Ophelia Onasis, Guard 420, and myself,' said Stella. 'Of course, we cannot do it alone, so the rest of the Abbey Sisters come down and help out so we have a large Sister presence. We just want to raise some money and have a blast while doing it!'

Each month, the Sisters pick a different co-beneficiary. The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence 2011 Grants Fund is the main beneficiary, and receives the $5 cover at the door. The co-beneficiary is permitted to table at the show, and receives two 'commercial' spots where they get to pitch their organization to the audience. In addition, the co-beneficiary can run a raffle with all the proceeds going to them - 'This way, it gets them directly involved,' says Stella.

Also, each Sinful 2nd Sunday, prize packages are generously donated by Dog House Leather and Channel 1 Releasing.

'The relationship between the Sisters and Neighbours is fabulous,' Stella told SGN. '[General Manager] Steve Tracy and his staff go above and beyond every month to help make the event a success. They are clearly committed to our community.'

'Sinful 2nd Sunday is for the community,' concludes Stella. 'It is our wish for people to know there is a new place to go to have fun and make a difference every second Sunday of the month. We love audience participation and there are tons of prizes at every show. Church is in session!'
