In English I would wirte: Dear Sister Andrew, letter continues here.

What is the appropriate address to use for a nun (monja) in Spanish? Hermana?

I should add that St. Andrew is the patron saint of Scotland. Just "google" Saint Andrew.

If you were raised "Catholic" you'd understand that when a woman enters the convent - "school / home" for nuns, she often takes the name of a Catholic saint. This is less prevalent today than it was 20 - 30 years ago, but there are many "nuns" named after male "saints".

Thanks, I genuinely did not know that. They say that you learn something every day. - 00515f39, NOV 3, 2009
