A religious sister in the catholic church is a woman who took public vows in a religious institute dedicated to apostolic works. They are not meant to marry as mentioned in their public vows.
The HarperCollins Encyclopedia of Catholicism (1995) defines them as “congregations of sisters institutes of women who profess the simple vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience, live a common life, and are engaged in ministering to the needs of society.”
