We are not alone...

Welcome to the inaugural post here at the official site of the Sisterhood of Saint Olga Society.

We are open to ladies and honorary gentlemen who admire and aspire to the greatness of Saint Olga of Kiev Equal-to-the-Apostles. It should be noted that we have no religious affiliation but simply aspire to the tenacity and determination of our namesake. The Sisterhood is brand new and has been created spontaneously by a dynamic group of talented people from around the world. Our impetus came from the story of Saint Olga's fascinating life. If you are curious about that, you can start here.

More to come soon but, if you are interested in joining the Sisterhood, please follow us at this blog.
