Oh geez...hmm. This could be too easy.. :think:
Well this specific order was founded in 1771 in Italy. The first American convent was established in 1910. They are cloistered contemplatives...

ooh, tough one. Insider information:

This congregation, founded in 1860, doesn't wear wedding rings because they melted them down to help the poor, I think during the Civil War.

oops, sorry if it wasn't my turn.
