Comments : There is an article on the Pink Nuns in The Public Record, 12/11/14, at p. 2 (www.phillyrecord,com). It says their real name is Cloistered Contemplative Sisters, and that their primary mission is to honor Jesus Christ in his presence in the Holy Eucharist during Masses and at all hours with their prayers. Joining them are hundreds of people who by the scores take part at any time of the day and night by visiting them in the chapel on Green Street. The article was about how the carpenters union hung banners for the sisters announcing their 100th anniversary.

Comments : There is a story on the recruiting efforts of the Pink Sisters in the Philadelphia Inquirer, 12/29/15, at pp. B1, B8. My mom tells me that my great aunt, Adele, joined the order and lasted one week, getting homesick and leaving.
