What are the Nuns called that wear blue?

I saw a nun that was wearing a blue Skirt/shirt and wearing the black and white hat thing. Is it a kind of break of from the church?

    That's the more popular uniform in France. It doesn't mean anything, that's just the outfit they chose to wear. They may be nuns, but they are still women and like to have some fashion sense.

    Several nuns wear blue, I know Mother Teresas order wear blue and white.

    Black and white veil could also be a Dominican order why didn't you ask her?

    The habit and veil sets you apart from the rest of the world, those that wear civilian clothes don't gain my respect.

    Blue Nun is a white wine?

    In the 1964 "Guide To The Catholic Sisterhoods in the U.S., by McCarthy, The Daughters of Mary of the Immaculate Conception once wore the royal blue habit, black veil, white sash and black rosary. The Sisters of Charity, begun in the 17th Century, use a blue gown and white cornette, now out of use. The Missionary Sisters Servants of The Holy Ghost wore a dark blue habit and veil.

    There are(or were) many colors other than black wool in use for the tunic or dress. Some Sisterhoods used brown, grey, white, dark red, deep purple, and one cloistered Order, the Sister Servants of the Holy Ghost of Perpetual Adoration wore a subdued pink habit with white cincture, never seen outside the cloister.

    The loss of all these holy sisterhoods, destroyed in only a few years after Vatican 2, from 1958 to 1970, never to be seen again, is another sign of the loss of charity and service in the world, and, more importantly, of holiness. This departure of the many Orders of men and women in the service of Christ's Rule of holy dedication is also the sign of the loss of the True Catholicism, the eclipse of the Church, the suspension of temporal Jurisdiction of the hierarchy, and of all religious belief anywhere, all of which precedes the Last Days of the Catholic Church, which, of necessity, are only the Last Days of the world.

    Today, there are "Orders" which operate as corporations, not in accordance to the Rule to which their Order was once granted papal permission upon which to vow service and prayer. In that, the present members disobey, causing scandal and committing sacrilege, for they no longer represent the holy Rule of Christ's service given by formal vows.

    In 2004, Traditio.com reported one of the last Sisterhoods, Charleston, W. Va. had shrunk to less than five members, and the bishop had ordered them to disband, took their $1,200,000 of earned funds for retirement and convent repairs, and threw them out into the streets to "work." Work? So much for the "New Order Vatican 2 Church of Love." Those nuns were the last of a million thrown out, nuns who had given the world their work, their teaching of children, their charity to the sick, to hospitals, their loyalty to Christ.

    Who will be the last Roman Catholic? Scripture, St. John, the Roman Church itself once and forever claims it is to be a remnant of those who will fight for it; of traditional Roman Catholic faithful.
