Chainsaw-Wielding Nun Helping Out With Recovery Efforts After Hurricane Irma
She was dressed in her religious habit.
One Florida nun is taking her vow of service to a whole new level.
Sister Margaret Ann of Archbishop Coleman F. Carroll High School in Miami, Fla., took a chainsaw to a downed tree as she helped with recovery efforts in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma.
The sister donned a full habit and work gloves as she took care of the work.
The Miami-Dade Police Department took time out to spotlight her efforts on their Facebook page.
“One of our off duty officers was happy to find Sister Margaret Ann of Archbishop Coleman F. Carroll High School pitching in by cutting trees to clear the neighborhood roadways,” they wrote on the post. “As we recover from #HurricaneIrma, these acts of kindness remind us all that we are #OneCommunity in #MiamiDadeCounty! ? Thank you Sister and all of our neighbors that are working together to get through this! “
Some commenters on the page posted that it was great to see the sister out there working.
“Prayers are great, but prayer accompanied by action is powerful,” one commenter wrote.
Others, however, were concerned for her safety due of her clothing, however.
“I'm a bit worried about using a [chainsaw] with loose clothing and the dangerous sawing motion. Please be careful,” another commenter wrote.
Hurricane Irma’s outer bands lashed the Miami area Sunday, flooding coastal areas around the city, downing power lines and trees and causing two high-rise construction cranes to collapse.
The damage was much more severe in the Florida Keys, where numerous homes were destroyed.
The death toll caused by the storm rose to at least 22 in the United States on Wednesday, according to reports.
