Nuns on the Bus
|On Sunday, June 9, at St. Mary’s Church in Seattle, a blessing was prepared for Elise DeGooyer in anticipation of the Nuns on the Bus tour. Present for the sendoff were (from left) Shaughn Gorman, PA, Rita Selin, Marie-Claire Soucy, SP, Clare Lentz, SP, Marilyn Sendek, PC, Charlene Hudon, SP, Kay Van Stralen, and Elise.
NETWORK, the social-justice activist organization led by Sister Simone Campbell, SSS, has been on the road again with its second “Nuns on the Bus” tour.
This time, our Sister Charlene Hudon was on board for part of the journey.
The nuns traveled from coast to coast – 6,500 miles and across 15 states – over three weeks. Their message was on immigration justice, calling attention to the fact that Congress needs to enact “commonsense 21st century immigration policies that reflect our true American values.”
Sister Charlene advocated on behalf of migrants, especially those who are undocumented. She joined the group in San Diego, Calif., on Thursday, June 13, for the last segment, traveling through the California cities of Irvine, Los Angeles, Bakersfield, Delano, Modesto, San Francisco and ending up at Angel Island on June 18.
