It has been 18 years since Whoopi Goldberg first donned a nun’s habit in Sister Act, but she couldn’t stay away from the singing convent forever. And this time, she’s hitting the stage in England.

Goldberg will be taking over the role of Mother Superior in Sister Act in London from August 10-31st, The Guardian reports.

The show opened in London a year ago. When production first began, Goldberg ruled out being a part of it. But apparently Whoopi has had a change of heart; it will be the first time the comedian will have performed in London’s famous West End.

Good luck, Whoopi. Also, praise the lord.
