    That habit says RSM of Alma to me…but in b&w it looks so nostalgic!

    The funny thing is, I have memories of nuns actually wearing habits. I was maybe eleven or twelve and going to a different school when the teaching sisters at our parish put on pantsuits (1975-76), so I couldn’t tell you exactly when the switch happened. But it was as though nuns had disappeared from the face of the earth.

    I really need to read your blog more regularly — I wait too long, and then I sit here reading post after post and just giggling like a fool. :-D

    That’s a Religious Sister of Mercy (Alma, MI)! I recognize the habit, which has princess seams for a more feminine, streamlined look. The white cross within the larger black cross (difficult to see in the picture) represents the nun herself, she is the corpus, crucified with Christ.
