Another order outside of full communion, employing a rather unique habit.

I think I saw these sisters at the airport the other day. They seemed to be having quite the time attempting to get through the pat down procedure. :(

The Sisters of Social Service in 1938. Check out the very unusual veils. It looks like veil material on top of a brimmed hat.

Of the last 3 orders shown above, only the Sisters of the Holy Family still utilize a discernible habit today.

Sadly, yes. :(

Wow! Lots of postulents! I'm so happy for them. :)

"My order" has four postulents.... :|

^ Four is pretty good! There are orders that haven't had a new entrant in years. My community currently has two novices, one in temporary vows due to take solemn vows soon and the other due to take temporary vows. There are a few new entrants expected this year, three or four I think.

Four isn't too bad, considering that the number of postulants in a great many communities stands at zero.
