Father Rush MoutmoreNellianne Manly

Sister Nelli Anne Manly
aka Brother Rush Mountmore

Aliases: I’m very proud to say that I’m also known as Saint Verba LaBuse in the Los Angeles House.
Date of Birth: January 31, in the same year Disneyland opened and “Marty” was the Best Picture Oscar winner.
Hometown: I was born in Glendale (California’s “Jewel” City). I guess that’s why I’m attracted to bright, shiny objects.
Childhood: I survived my formative years in the San Fernando Valley. It was very traumatic, being raised by…DARE I SAY IT…Republicans!
Education: After two years of College, I attended Floral Design and Bartending Schools…that’s not too gay, is it?
Occupation: Let’s just say if you give me flowers and fabric, I can create one FABULOUS Wedding or Party.
Scandalous people I’ve met: Serial Killer Randy Kraft at a party shortly before he was arrested, O.J. Simpson at a Bar Mitzvah in the late 1980’s and Paris Hilton when she was 7 years old.
Marital Status: Blissfully married to Sister Tess Tickles of the Sacred Scrotum.
Hobbies: I enjoy playing Hide and Seek with Lawn Gnomes, playing Naked Twister and Strip Jenga.
Calling: I got my calling in the early 1990’s, when for some strange reason, I found myself South of Market San Francisco. It was then that I stumbled on to a Sister Poetry Reading at Hamburger Mary’s.

Father Pat

Brother Pat MyHiney

Mistress of Discipline

I am proud to offer my ability to find goodness in people while restoring their faith in themselves.  Putting on a “face” allows me to share my inner child while spreading Universal Joy.  First female (born that way!) member of the PS Sisters.

Sister Penney Pasta

Sister Penney Pasta of the Poke-a-dot Vestments

Mistress of Balls
Mistress of Quarters
Mistress of Archives

I am happily retired here in Palm Springs since 1999.  I knew in 1981 that I wanted to be a “Sister” while attending a Pride event in San Francisco, when I first saw The Sisters.  The fit is perfect for me and I’m proud of all my fellow Sisters worldwide and the incredible work we’ve done!  Spread the Joy!  Live, laugh, love!  Founding Member of the Palm Springs House – 2006.

Sister Teryn

Sister Teryn McCloseoff

former Mistress of Propaganda

Sister Teryn is our lady of the looks.  Teryn is often in the spotlight, but her humility gives us all pause.  Centered and grounded, this nun provides us all the beauty of life.

Sister Tess Tickles

Sister Tess Tickles of the Sacred Scrotum

Sister Tess is the BIGGEST of the Palm Springs Sisters.  Born in Southern California’s olden times, when musical disks were made of Bakelite that had to be played at 78 RPM, television was black and white, and gasoline was sold at full service stations for 12 cents a gallon.  She grew up, in the Upper Mojave Desert, as the offspring of a politically conservative aerospace family.  Formally trained as an Industrial Designer she spent 27 years working on classified implements of mass destruction.  (Psst…the government was never able to find them!)
As her name implies she has a proclivity for the male reproductive organs and is not shy about groping people at the first introduction.  She often wears large fuzzy purple balls on her habit as an indicator of her interests.
She is happily married to Sister Nellianne Manly with whom she shares a charming 1980’s tract home in the cultural wasteland of the Antelope Valley.  Her house is usually a flurry of creative activity, most of the time, but if it weren’t for that nagging bitch Nelli, she wouldn’t be able to get her act together .
Her hobbies include knitting colorful scrotum cozies, origami penis folding, mechanical rubber toys and generally making things pretty.
Her initial involvement with the Sisters began in the Los Angeles house, giving the girls support in various ways.   She was canonized with the name “Saint Kelly of the Purple Hankie” by the LA house, because of her service to the house and her love of body jewelry.
It was the example of the LA sisters, and watching visiting sisters to LA that sparked her interest in becoming a Sister and a founding member of the Palm Springs house.

Brother T. GingerBear

Minister of Technology
Minister of Scribes (Secretary)
Minister of Propaganda

GingerBear began life with the Palm Springs Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence in February 2014, and worked hard to be elevated to the status of Fully Professed Member 1 year later, in February 2015.  He has been continuing his support of Sisters organizations, a support that started long before his time with the order, attending many events and functions hosted by the Palm Springs Sisters, as well as the Los Angeles Sisters when living in the Long Beach area.  His calling is to work as a bridge builder, to help the Palm Springs Sisters strengthen their ties with other organizations, as well as growing acceptance of the house and all that the house does.  GingerBear works hard to be a positive influence on all, and sometimes that ain’t easy!

Teresa Flower

Sister Teresa Solution

former Mistress of Novices

Teresa received her calling while sitting on the floor of a the master bedroom during a house-party in the suburbs of Boston and has never looked back. As a founding member of the Boston Sisters, Convent of the Commonwealth, Sr. Teresa is honored to have worked on events assisting HRC, the Boston Living Center, Provincetown Soup Kitchen, AIDS Action Committee, BAGLY, Fenway Health, the LGBT Asylum Task Force and more fetish organizations than you could shake a stick at. In 2013, Sr Teresa packed her bows and moved west where she was warmly welcomed (it is a desert) by her Palm Springs Sisters. She hopes to continue to live by the credo established in Boston: We love you! We adore you! We respect you! We protect you! We serve you! We are your Sisters!
