The Flying Nun

And the Women of the West

   (0 reviews)


Sister Anne Maree Jensen's baseball cap, riding boots and a Cessna aeroplane are not usually part of the image that comes to mind when we think of nuns - but then, Sister Anne Maree Jensen's 'Aerial Ministry' is not a conventional calling either. For the past ten years, Sister Anne Maree has been flying over some of the most remote parts of outback southwest Queensland, bringing companionship to the women who live in her bush parish.  Her parish includes more than 250,000 square kilometres of sheep and cattle stations, roughly the size of West Germany. The stoic resilience of these women 'who battle against drought and loneliness in a harsh environment' provides the 'Flying Nun' with the inspiration to pursue her unusual mission. But the The Flying Nun is not the story of Sister Anne Maree alone. It is also the story of the 13 women to whom her life and work are devoted.
