Supporters, critics and a step-by-step on how to help the sisters

Ever since Fr. James Martin of America Magazine launched a Twitter campaign to support the nuns criticized in a Vatican report a couple of weeks ago, praise for the sisters has been pouring in. Just in case you missed it:



This week, we celebrate the first anniversary of the launch of our podcast, NCR in Conversation. Catch the latest episode here.



The Twitter feed has been relatively quiet in the last couple of days, but momentum is building behind a series of prayer vigils that kick off tomorrow, organized by The Nun Justice Project with the help of local Catholic groups. Events were originally planned in a handful of cities, but the list grew to about a dozen over the weekend.

For more suggestions on how to help the sisters, see this list on the Soujourners blog, by Sr. Janet Gottschalk of Washington, D.C.-based Alliance for Justice.
