Sister habits


What order of nuns still wear veils?



A whole bunch of them! :slight_smile:

Carmelites, Dominicans, Poor Clares, Passionists, Benedictines, newer congregations like the Sisters of Life or Queenship of Mary in Canada, Children of Mary, Sisters of Our Lady Immaculate…


But not all even in the congregations listed (such as Dominicans–most in the US do not wear veils, for instance).

If this is important to you, you need to check with individual congregations. If it’s not important to you, no biggie.
