Vigils for Nun Justice

Vigils for Nun Justice in Support of LCWR Are Being Held During May Outside Cathedrals in the U.S.

Tuesday evening May 8th Prayerful Vigil Portland, Oregon outside St. Marys Cathedral to support Catholic sisters. Catholics prayed this evening for the religious women and their leadership the LCWR as they begin to deal with the latest mandates from the Vatican. This is just one of many vigils taking place around the country on Tuesday nights during May. The message is clear that "The people are the Church" not the Vatican and that the people support the sisters and their positions on subjects of health care, women's equality in the church, gays and lesbians and freedom of conscience. Vigils in support of nun justice are being held on Tuesdays outside cathedrals in the United States.
