    Background: POSSIBLY FOR THE FIRST TIME IN THE HISTORY OF THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH A GROUP OF NUNS HAS BEEN GIVEN PERMISSION TO EXCHANGE THEIR HABIT FOR CHUNKY SWEATERS, SKI PANTS AND ANORAKS. THE FIVE SISTERS IN THE GROUP ARE ATTENDING A SCHOOL FOR SKI INSTRUCTORS AT THE VILLAGE OF MITTERBACH, 86 MILES, (140 KMS), FROM VIENNA.

    THE DECISION TO ALLOW THE SISTERS TO TAKE SKIING LESSONS FOLLOWED A MOVE TO MAKE SKI INSTRUCTION AT ROMAN CATHOLIC SCHOOLS IN AUSTRIA THE RESPONSIBILITY OF CHURCH AUTHORITIES.

    ALTHOUGH IT'S HARD TO DISTINGUISH THE SISTERS FROM OTHER HOLIDAY-MAKERS WHILE THEY'RE ON SKIS, INSTEAD OF CHANGING INTO GAY DRESS FOR APRES-SKI, THEY AGAIN PUT ON THE HABIT OF THEIR INDIVIDUAL ORDERS.
