Convent Honor Roll: Religious Sisters who Veil

I've been thinking that it might be nice to start an honor roll for religious sisters who wear the veil.

What orders and convents of sisters still wear the veil?

And do you know any lone sisters who continue to veil despite the fact that are the only ones to do so in their communities?

I'm going to start with the following honorable mentions:
Let the nominations begin!

In the meantime, here is a cartoon from Catholic Cartoon Blog.


  1. Daughters of Mary Mother of Healing Love

    Daughters of St Paul

    Sisters of the Precious Blood

    Carmelites of Boston

    Carmelite Sisters of the Divine Heart of Jesus

    And many more! I can honestly only think of two groups off the top of my head where the majority of the sisters don't veil. I guess I'm sheltered?

  2. Another nomination I just thought of: The Tyburn Nuns (cloistered) (in the UK, Australia and NZ).

  3. Sisters of St. Francis of Perpetual Adoration

    Franciscan Sisters, T.O.R. of Penance of the Sorrowful Mother
