NCR readers in Scottsdale and Tucson, Ariz., and Kansas City, Mo.: This is your week to see "Band of Sisters," the documentary by Mary Fishman of Chicago that chronicles the stories of several American nuns serving as central agents in the most effective social movements of our time and traces the shaping of community missions in a post-Vatican II church.

Kansas Citians can see the film at 7 p.m. Thursday at The Tivoli in Westport, 4050 Pennsylvania Ave.
