Sisters in Royal Blue Habits

Recommended Posts

Julie

Here's a little mystery, let's see who can solve it for me.

Today, the order of Malta is having some retreat thingie with Cardinal Burke at my college in Southern California. (That might give away where I go to school, but I don't really mind.) At Mass this morning, there was a sister wearing a royal blue habit. Just plain royal blue tunic, scapular, and veil. The veil was pretty long and came kind of low down on her forehead, and it was entirely blue, but seemed a little more structured than other "one peice" veils I've seen before, so maybe there were multiple peices in the same fabric. 

Anyways, Google searching has not helped me, and I thought someone here could. I would recognize the habit if I saw it (she came up to me in the chapel to ask whether we were in the chapel, so I got a good look, even though I didn't get the chance to chat with her.)

Nope. The tunic was a little longer, almost to the floor, and the veil had no white whatsoever (that was one of the striking things- I've never seen a habit that was purely one color.) 

That is the right blue, though.

 There was some kind of wimple, or it was a simple veil ? Did you see the hairs ? 

I can't think of any community in full blue, really.

Well, this is really vague, and I've searched for a while, but I'm apparently missing the key words.  I'm sure I've seen an all blue habit; the congregation is small from what I remember, have a priests/brothers version, offer retreats, and I think have a devotion to Maximillian Kolbe.  Maybe that will trigger something with another person and hopefully bring you an answer.

Perhaps these?  Handmaids of the Triune God, a public association of the faithful in southern California.

Actually, this might be right. I was pretty sure that the sleeves were different (also darker blue) but I could be wrong, because there was a sweater involved. :icey:  The rest is spot on, and also, though I'm not great with faces, the taller sister looks a little familiar. It also explains why I hadn't seen a habit like that before!

You're thinking about the Sisters minors of Mary Immaculate or the Missionaries of the Heart of Jesus and Mary Immaculate. They were suppressed a few month ago (http://www.phatmass.com/phorum/topic/112019-new-institute-of-franciscan-missionary-sisters/?page=4 )

Hadn't even thought of them. Turns out I was thinking of the Daughters of the Immaculata who are based in Illinois.
