All their sal- aries are paid directly to their order, which has an immediate and urgent need for the money. The project was begun when the Sisters found themselves without sufficient income to meet a large payment on their new St. Paul Priory. The situation stemmed from a drop in the number of young women joining the order, com- bined with increased retirements. Sister Rolaine, assistant to the mother superior, said the nuns were faced with finding the needed funds or else refinancing at a three per cent hike in interest rates, to eight-and-one-half per cent. One Sister contacted a Minne- apolis employment firm which specializes in temporary posi- tions. A company offici a free brush-up practices before ters in jobs. The Sisters wear street clothes and black the job. Sister Rolalne veils are removed if object strongly to them. If the Sisters' successful in raising funds, Sister Rolalne may have to seek a loan, or contributions factors. But "we this through our own possible," she said.
