The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, Inc. 

The Fourth City Sisters (FCS) is a Mission of The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. Formed as a 501(C) (3) public charitable organization, we are dedicated to the support, education, and development of the LGBT community.

The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence came into existence Easter weekend in 1979. Three men dressed in full traditional nuns habits went out into the San Francisco community and began what has become the Sisters’ mission. “The Sisters are an order of 21st Century nuns dedicated to the promulgation of universal joy and the expiation of stigmatic guilt. Our ministry is one of public manifestation and habitual perpetration.” Since then, many have heeded the calling and there are now hundreds of Sisters, manifesting in countries all around the world. The Fourth City Sisters reflects the beauty flowing forth from our surroundings as well as our desire to shine upon our community through charitable acts, community outreach, and education; doing so, in a fashion that “promulgates universal joy and expiates stigmatic guilt”.
