Novice Sister Penni P. N'cher


Why did you choose that name?

It just kinda came to me one day. It’s a play on the words “penny pincher” as I’ve always been very frugal with money. The name penni reminds me of the clown and in a sense we are “clown nuns” so it was fitting. Fun fact also; I was scared of clowns as a kid, so it’s kind of funny to resemble one now that I’m older.

Why did you join the Order?

​ I joined the Worldwide order of The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence to express my creativity. Being a Sister gives me the ability to be a different persona and do things that I've always thought weren't

for boys such as wearing dresses and doing makeup. I also joined the Sisters to give back to a community that I've grown to finally feel accepted in. It took so long for me to accept the fact that I was different and I felt like I couldn't relate to others. Finding the LGBTQ + community and PRIDE events 

What is your personal mission or ministry?
I'm still learning my path in my ministry but I feel that my calling is with the LGBTQ + community. I struggled with my sexuality as a kid and wished that I had met the Sisters when I was younger to help me understand that it’s okay to be who I was on the inside. Just to have that someone that you can go to and talk to. Someone to bring joy into what can be a very dark time in life. Being a Sister has also helped me personally get over my own fears and thoughts of what others think of me. Dressing in makeup and dresses and wearing a coronet in front of large crowds of people, was a little awkward at first. But after being able to meet and talk with so many people and see how much of a difference it makes, that’s what makes it all worth it. I want to just be e for my community and show that I love and support them.​
