A Changing Order

Free sample

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.

About the author

Pauline O’Regan has been a Sister of Mercy for the past 70 years. She recently celebrated her 90th birthday. She began writing at the age of 60 and has had the good fortune to be associated with Bridget Williams as her publisher since 1986. It has been a very happy and fruitful association which Pauline values enormously.

Pauline was a secondary school teacher for some 30 years. She was Principal of Villa Maria College in Christchurch for 17 years. She resigned from that position to go with two other Sisters to live in a poorer suburb of Christchurch to work in the community. One of the goals of her community was to train local women to become leaders in their own area.

The book she wrote in partnership with Sister Teresa O’Connor, entitled, Community – Give it a Go! has been widely used ever since by community workers all over New Zealand. It was later turned into a workbook under the title, I Can Change Anything ̶ But Not On My Own. Her book, There is Hope for a Tree is a clear-eyed challenge to the Catholic Church from one on the inside.
