Nun Battling Katy Perry Over Convent Sale Dies In Court

  • Sister Catherine Rose Holzman 89 is shown during an older court proceeding alongside the property she is in a battle with the L.A. archdiocese and Katy Perry over

The two sisters, who are of the original five, have always claimed to be the rightful owners of the convent having lived their since 1973 until their leave in 2011. Instead, the sisters wanted to sell the property to Hollister who meant to turn the convent into a boutique hotel. A legal battle involving Katy Perry and a group of nuns is like the premise for a Sick Sad World bit from Daria (shout out to my 90's boys out there) and has now at least in part been linked to one nun's death.

In 2015 Katy Perry entered into a legal battle with nuns, Sister Rita Callanan and the now late Sister Catherine Rose Holzman who passed away on Friday.

A judge voided Hollister's sale a year ago, saying the archdiocese had the right to sell the property, not the nuns.

Perry and the Archdiocese successfully sued Hollister over her interference; they were awarded $15million between them in punitive damages in December. Before her death, Sister Holzman told Fox11 LA that, "We asked [Hollister] to save us, to buy the property".

Fox 7 reported that the sister "collapsed and died" during a court appearance related to the case.

Diakite came off the bench to score 10 points in Friday's semifinal win over Clemson, while Wilkins is a jack of all trades. North Carolina won despite a really sloppy final few minutes where nearly all of their double-digit leads evaporated.


In December of 2017 another judge sided with Perry, and ordered Hollister to pay Perry and the Archdiocese of Los Angeles almost $10 million in damages.

While walking into court on Friday, Holzman was interviewed by Fox 11 and said "To Katy Perry, please stop".

"After she spoke [about] her lifestyle, and what we have been teaching for years and our older sisters have been teaching, and what we believe in, [she] just did not fit", she said. They say their convent is under the direct control of the Vatican and has never been a part of the LA Archdiocese. They also found that her actions led to Perry and the archdiocese having to pay exorbitant lawyer fees and other costs, which Hollister should get the bill for.

The case went to court and in 2016 Perry won the right to purchase the property.

"It's not doing anyone any good except hurting a lot of people".
