When I was in high school, I had a Religion teacher named Sister Peggy. Peggy was the kind of nun who usually didn’t wear a habit. Instead, she sported soft pastel turtlenecks with a tiny cross necklace on the outside of the collar, and a tan skirt. When she did wear a habit, it was a very simple piece of cloth pinned to her hair, with her bangs still resting on her forehead.
