Blue Nuns

A few weeks ago we traveled to Omaha to attend my nieces confirmation.  As I was exiting the church I literally bumped into a couple of Nuns.  Given we were in a Catholic church there was nothing unusual about meeting these ladies.  What did surprise me was the color of their habits.  When was the last time you saw a group of Nun's dress in Powder Blue?  

After a brief conversation with one of the Sisters I learned they belonged to a new community of Nun's called the  Brides of the Victorious Lamb.  Their order is only located in the Omaha area and their decree of recognition was signed by the Archbishop less then four months ago on February 11, 2012

You can learn more about this new religious order by visiting their website by clicking here.

  1. Wonderful blue! And what a great color to choose...I seem to remember that is the color that Mary is often shown wearing...just lovely!

  2. They look like happy ladies. Powder blue is such a lovely colour to use. It is quite a calm serene colour I think.

  3. My goodness, shades of my long-ago childhood. I though most nuns these days dressed like regular people.

  4. They look very happy.

    My BLUES, please come and see when you get a chance.

  5. That's a great change! Love that color!
