From the Episcopal Church of the Redeemer:

Nuns on the Bus, a project of NETWORK Lobby for Catholic Social Justice, is coming to Morristown’s Church of the Redeemer on Tuesday, Oct. 23, 2018. The program will include a free community dinner at 6 pm and discussion and bus-signing at 7 pm.

The Nuns on the Bus: The Tax Justice Truth Tour is traveling from California to Mar-a-Lago ahead of the 2018 midterms to focus on tax justice and reasonable revenue for responsible programs.

Throughout the journey, Sister Simone Campbell will be joined by 30 other Catholic sisters for the 21-state tour that will end at Mar-a-Lago with a “Fiesta for the Common Good.”

“We are excited to have Sister Simone and Nuns on the Bus at Redeemer,” said the Rev. Cynthia Black, rector of the Church of the Redeemer. “The message that they are taking across the country is one that needs to be heard—that no one should be left behind.”
