Skating Sisters and “The Flying Nun”.

My wife Judy has a sister who is a sister, Sister Anne Turba.  Judy loves her sister a great deal and I think that shows in these photos.  Earlier this year Anne mentioned to me that she and some of the other sisters at Holy Family Convent in Manitowoc get together a few times a year to skate on the lake at the convent and even do a little toboggan riding.  The editorial photographer in me knew this would make some great pictures.  Things didn’t work out this winter to get a large group together, but a few of the sisters went out skating with Anne on her birthday.  Judy and I just happened to visit that afternoon.  Here are a few of the photos and a series that I call “The Flying Nun”, even though they are sisters and not nuns.  I’m looking forward to being invited back next year.  Everyone at the convent is so warm and welcoming to us.  If you would like to see additional photos or to license an image please visit my archive.

Enjoy!

  • Sr. Julie Ann Sheahan - Mike, these are classic Sister photos. Thanks for sharing with the world. The family sisterly bond is so present in the eyes of these two Turba sisters. And our Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity are real women handling the ups and downs of life! Peace and all good.

  • Sandra Bardsley - I let my kids know when I was their age (10-12), I wanted to be an ice skater and a nun. My kids burst in laughter because they never heard such a thing. They tell their friends that “My mom wanted to be an ice skating Nun”. They all laugh. Well Sisters, no more can they laugh at me after I used google and found you. Now they know anything is possible. Great photos and thank you for posting them.
