In this Dec. 22, 2011 photo, Sister Angele Arbib moves a place setting inside the Abbey of Regina Laudis monastery in Bethlehem, Conn. Mother Dolores, a cloistered nun whose luminous blue eyes entranced Elvis Presley in his first on-screen movie kiss, is praying for a Christmas miracle. She walked away from Hollywood stardom in 1963 to become a nun in rural Bethlehem. Now she finds herself back in the spotlight, but this time it's all about serving the King of Kings, not smooching the King of Rock and Roll. The former brass factory that houses Mother Dolores and about 40 other nuns cloistered at the Abbey of Regina Laudis needs millions of dollars in renovations to meet fire and safety codes, add an elevator and make handicap accessibility upgrades.
