Nun Justice Project wraps up a month of vigils in support of Catholic sisters

 | 

In about 50 cities across the country, supporters of Catholic sisters gathered Tuesday (May 29) with candles, signs and words of gratitude for nuns during the final prayer vigil planned in May to support the Leadership Conference of Women Religious. The vigils were organized by local Catholic groups, as part of a grassroots effort led by The Nun Justice Project.

"It's been a remarkable month," said Jim FitzGerald, a spokesman for the Nun Justice Project, who is executive director of Call To Action. "The message for the nuns was, 'This isn't just about nuns, this is about all of us in the church, about justice.'"
