Vigils Held In Support Of American Nuns

Aug 8, 2012

The Vatican has accused American nuns of having ignored various church doctrines and pushing "certain radical feminist themes incompatible with the Catholic faith." 180 people turned out to support them at a prayer vigil Tuesday night at a Catholic church on Cleveland's west side, to mark the opening day of a four-day convention in St. Louis. The convention is being held by an organization representing more than 80 percent of the 57-thousand nuns in the United States. The vigil was one of many held throughout the country.
