Texas Nuns Legal Battle with Diocese: Amidst Sin, Denial and Property Values


 The dismissal of Reverend Mother Teresa Agnes from the Order of Discalced Carmelites further escalated tensions between the nuns and the diocese. Through her attorney, Gerlach denied the allegations and admission attributed to her by the diocese.

The legal battle continues

As the legal battle continues, the Ladies Auxiliary to the Discalced Carmelite Nuns has publicly backed the nuns, advocating for the return of daily Mass to the monastery. 

The auxiliary, with its more than 225 members, has supported the nuns for decades, providing assistance with groceries, feast day meals, and fundraising.

 Natalie Strand, the outgoing president of the group, expressed her pride in standing behind the nuns in their fight against injustice.

Reverend Mother Teresa Agnes has thirty days to appeal the decision to the Dicastery for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of the Apostolic Life. The nuns and their supporters remain committed to fighting for their cause.

“They are going to fight to the last moment. And we’re going to help them any way we can,” Strand emphasized.
