All Angels Parish

Welcome to All Angels Parish, where the parishoners may not be all angels, but they are all trying…. sometimes, very trying!

Nun Funnies!

What are black and white and read all over? Nun Funnies! 

Back before Sister Act, before Nunsense, before Sister Mary Elephant and even The Flying Nun, nuns were tickling our funny bones in cartoon form. Here, originally published by the Catholic magazine Extension, are hundreds of examples, one for each day of the year (no need to take Sundays off.) Really, as many nun cartoons as the average person will need in a lifetime, all by the talented Joe Lane!
