In order to keep up with the changing world and changing fashions Catholic nuns have for some time done their best to dress in "Mod" habits. The SCN staff can remember when Catholic nuns never showed their ankles nor their hair.
Times have changed!
On the left you see a Catholic nun from the Convent of The Holy Family at Kalutara modeling the latest habit (but still the traditional black). On the right you can see a Buddhist nun from the Sri Sambuddhi temple dressed in the latest habit or "Sivura" but still in the traditional Saffron.
Sadly, times have changed.
Note the impressive collection of designer handbags in the background!
