Originally Shown June 10 – July 3, 2004
The Little Sisters of Hoboken operate Mount Saint Helen’s School in Hoboken, New Jersey.
Originally founded as a missionary order, they started out running a leper colony on an island south of France. Forced to leave the island when they lost control to a group of Protestant competitors, they returned to Hoboken.
They went unnoticed until one day their cook, Sister Julia — Child of God, unwittingly served some tainted vichyssoise soup and 52 sisters died of botulism. Fortunately a few of the sisters were off playing bingo with some Maryknolls and so were spared.
Upon discovering the disaster, Mother Superior had a vision — it was either Saint Catherine of Siena or Saint Thomas Aquinas in drag (she’s not sure) — in which she was told to start a greeting card company to raise funds for the burials of the 52. The greeting cards were an enormous success and thinking there was plenty of money, Reverend Mother bought a big screnn plasma TV for the convent. When she realized there was only enough money left to bury 48, she decided to stage a talent show to raise the money to bury the last four sisters who were put on ice in the convent deep freeze.
