Hundreds attend Wednesday prayer vigil in Cleveland

 | 

About 650 people came to a prayer vigil to support Catholic sisters held Wednesday (May 30) at a Cleveland, Ohio, parish, Christine Schenk, of Catholic organization FutureChurch, tells The Cleveland Plain Dealer in this report.

"Nuns are precious to the Catholic faithful. ... They have brought zeal and creativity to the ministry," one of the attendees, the Rev. Mark Hobson, told the newspaper. "This can be threatening to people who feel things should always remain the same in the church."
