The Twitter feed has been relatively quiet in the last couple of days, but momentum is building behind a series of prayer vigils that kick off tomorrow, organized by The Nun Justice Project with the help of local Catholic groups. Events were originally planned in a handful of cities, but the list grew to about a dozen over the weekend.

For more suggestions on how to help the sisters, see this list on the Soujourners blog, by Sr. Janet Gottschalk of Washington, D.C.-based Alliance for Justice.
