Prayer memorial for three nuns

By Yvette Yeon - bio | email

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Sister Charlotte Lange is very popular at St. Gertrude High School. At 70-years-old, she's described as embodying the entire spirit of the school. 

"She is just such an inspiration for young girls across the community and being from Richmond, I think a lot of people really connect with her. She's not what you'd expect to be the typical nun so everyone gets very excited around Sister Charlotte and she just has this presence that's indescribable, really," said faculty member, Valerie Tellmann.

For Patricia Ready, her old school-mate Charlotte was popular way before she became a Benedictine Sister and then a principal.

"She was vivacious and fun, she was just a wonderful person and a great girl, fun to be around," said Ready.

It is at Sister Charlotte's old stomping grounds where it pains dear friends and colleagues who were compelled to show up, to know she and Sister Connie Ruth Lupton are suffering from severe injuries and that the life of Sister Denise Mosier is now gone.

Music and prayer filled the gym and Reverend Michael Renninger shared fun stories about Sister Lange. He also talked about forgiveness. But trying to forgive three time DUI offender, Carlos Montano, is hard to do.

"I don't know how people could do that, it's just, you're not thinking of anybody but yourself," said Joan Liscim.
