BETHLEHEM, Conn. (WTNH)– A nun in Connecticut is hoping her life story will help save her monastery in Bethlehem.
Mother Dolores Hart was the first person to ever kiss Elvis Presley on screen. The kiss can be seen in the 1957 movie ‘Loving You.’
Hart is using her claim to fame to save The Abbey of Regina Laudis in Bethlehem. She’s sharing her story through speaking engagements to raise money for the abbey. She did this before in 2011 when she raised money to fix fire and safety violations by giving speeches about her past.
The Abbey of Regina Laudis is hoping her latest speaking tour will help wrap up a $9 million renovation project.
