A Changing Order

A Changing Order

Pauline O’Regan entered a convent at the age of 21. Thirty years later, in 1973, she and two other nuns moved into a house in a raw suburban development in Christchurch to create a new form of vocational community.

A Changing Order tells the story of O’Regan’s life: her childhood on a remote farm, her education, and her years in a dedicated religious order. It also documents the ways in which community work changed her views and led her to public protest and activism. A remarkable story, told with warmth and honesty.
