It seems appropriate to post this here...

today I was driving to the Motherhouse and I was on the highway. I saw a little girl looking at me and she was smiling... it was super cute... THEN all of the sudden I look into the lane next to mine and I see a woman in the passenger seat with a camera looking at me. I don't know if she was taking video or pics but after they were done the man driving gave me a thumbs up and the kids were super cute smiling at me in the back of the car...

you never know when you're going to get a nun picture...

This is the picture. As you can see, the kerchief covers the chin. It was actually a second piece, not actually attached to the guimpe.

Ooooooh! So the kerchief covered the head & chin & [i]then [/i]the veil went on top! Ok, now I get it! :doh: I was picturing something like this:

Yeah, it's so sweet the way they are looking at each other! I also like this one of the Novice and Postulant removing the pall from her during the solemn profession .(can't see her in the pic)

Nunsense, what community is this, the one you just posted. Looks like they take "mature" vocations. I would be interested in finding out about them. Thanks.

I thought you were 'Totally Franciscan"? :P These women are Benedictines you know! :)

They are the

Benedictine Sisters of Corpus Christi Monastery

They do have an email address on the site and a contact us page but I don't suggest you try either of these contact methods. I sent probably 4 or 5 emails via their contact page and their email address, all with no response. I then phone then and left a voicemail, no response. I suggest either snail mail or phoning until you get them. Being in Oz, it is harder for me to do this.

They do take mature vocations and there is a lovely article about them online that I copied if anyone wants to read it I can post it here or in another thread (this is supposed to be a picture thread after all!!) They have photos posted on their website of a Clothing and a Profession but they never seem to update it so I assume they are not online much (if at all) and perhaps a friend of the convent put this site up for them?



Address:

Benedictine Sisters of Corpus Christi Monastery

And here she is again, one very happy nun - during the kiss of peace.

Thanks, Nunsense. Yes, I am Totally Franciscan, but the Franciscans won't accept "mature" vocations. I would very much like to read that article you have, but as you say, it might be better on another thread. :unsure:
