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)

One thing your article had FAILED to mention was, Sister Simone Campbell who was invited by Pres. Obama to greet Pope Francis on his trip to the United States According to Life News August 4, 2016 she praised the president of NARAL (abortion Group) president Ilyse Hogu for her endeavor in this movement. This so called nun is a PRO ABORTIONIST ACTIVIST. She is just as guilty as the pro abortion politicians. When will the Catholic Church wake up and correct these problems. Now I see why the pews are emptying.
