Over the course of three weeks in July and crossing 13 states, the group of religious sisters associated with the organization Network took their Nuns on the Bus tour to American cities and towns to hear and share stories of economically challenged Americans, and how the economic gap might be bridged. People along the way showed their support of the sisters’ efforts by writing their signatures on the bus.
Twenty nuns participated in the road trip which ended in Philadelphia during the week of the Democratic National Convention with a rally at St. Joseph’s Preparatory School in the city. Network is a social justice lobby inspired by Catholic sisters. (Photos by Sarah Webb)
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
