Sisters of Saint-Paul de Chartres in Pleiku, Vietnam, care for and educate
orphans of lepers and children of lepers who are shunned.
The Sisters of Saint Francis of Assisi
in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, have found a way to keep geese from landing on
their property. They place stuffed coyotes on their property in the
morning and remove the stuffed coyotes in the afternoon, and place
the stuffed coyotes in a different location the next morning.
Additionally, the nuns spray ultraviolet on their grass which the geese
see but humans cannot see. The geese no longer land on the nuns'
property. (The nuns don't like cleaning up after the geese.)
Sister Ruth Augustus, 64, has been
traveling for 20 years carrying a statue of the Blessed Mother and the
