    A woman who says she's wanted to be a nun her entire life finally got her wish -- at 92.

    Chrystalla Petropoulou officially became a nun Saturday with the Greek Orthodox Church at a monastery in Calverton, L.I., in Suffolk County.

    Petropoulou contributed to the building of the monastery, which was finished in 2005. She lives there with a few other woman, all in their 20s.
