This chapter summarizes the period, age, and cohort effects that influence whether a Catholic woman in the United States will enter a religious institute and which institute she will choose. Implications for religious institutes of both the traditionalist (CMSWR) and the progressive (LCWR) conferences of Catholic sisters, and also for the Catholic Church in general, are discussed. Recommendations are made.
