After serving up countless lessons about the saints, venial sins and purgatory, Sister is back to school her "class" (that's you!) on the sacraments of marriage and last rites. But don't worry if school isn't your strong suit. Sister's class is more like a wacky mashup of The Newlywed Game and stand-up comedy than an academic experience.

This is the third installment of the popular series, which was co-written by Maripat Donovan and Marc Silva, but no knowledge of the other shows is required.
