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. "We extend our prayers today to the Immaculate Heart of Mary community and to all her friends and loved ones", a statement from the archdiocese read.

Pulling no punches, Sisters Rita Callanan and Holzman of the Sisters of the Immaculate Heart spoke out for the first time since an LA County judge ruled against them clearing the way for the LA Archdiocese to sell their Los Feliz convent to singer Katy Perry. Past year "a jury found Hollister guilty of malice and fraud for allegedly interfering with the sale of the property", according to Fox 11.

The sisters did not have the right to sell the property, as they did not obtain the legal blessings of Archbishop Jose Gomez and the Vatican.
