Nuns see orders diminishing on LI
"Sister Mary Loyola Engel is 102 years old and has been a nun for 80 years. She remembers when healthy numbers of young women entered her congregation, which founded the Mercy Medical Center in Rockville Centre.
But no one has entered the Congregation of the Infant Jesus in 40 years. The youngest member today is 61."
The story is not really news and of course the communities that wear habits, are faithful to the Church and do apostolic work together as communities continue to grow.
