In Annabelle: Creation, Janice confesses to Sister Charlotte.

But is a nun even allowed to hear confessions? Don't you need a priest for that?


1 Answer 1


This was addressed in a roundtable discussion with the film's director and the actress portraying the nun.

Q. The whole idea of saying confession to you to me made me think, “She’s not a priest. Why would she say that to you?”

David F. Sandberg: Well, we don’t have a priest around. They’re improvising.

Stephanie Sigman: It’s not that traditional, I think. She’s not that traditional nun.
