Nuns on the run – the alternative to residential care

Two fugitive nuns in their 80s have gone on the run in France to escape being sent to a retirement home by their Mother Superior.

Sister Marie-Daniel, 86, and Sister Saint-Denis, 82, fled their nunnery two weeks ago after convent officials said they were being sent to a remote mountain retreat 250 miles away.

A third 89-year-old nun, Sister Maurice-Marie, has revealed she also wanted to flee but broke her leg four days before the two elderly sisters disappeared.

Keep on running, Girls!  Great choice!  You can’t blame them really!

    Yes, Jean, get as far away as you can girls!

    I wonder whether we could set up a support fund to assist and support Sister Maurice-Marie on the way to freedom?

    What a wonderful contribution to care for the elderly that would be.

    It could always be called “Sisters are doing it for themselves”!!
