June 7, 2013 — A group of Catholic nuns who are crisscrossing the U.S. in an effort to influence the discussion on immigration reform, will bring their bus and entourage to Arizona June 12.

Having made their way west from the tour’s starting point in Connecticut, the Nuns on the Bus tour will first stop in Nogales at 9 a.m. before making a quick stop in Tucson at midday, culminating in an action at the offices of Sens. John McCain and Jeff Flake, 2200 E. Camelback Road, Phoenix at 3 p.m. The tour will then move on to the St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center, Sonntag Pavillion, 350 W. Thomas Road, Phoenix, for a “friendraiser.”

Nuns on the Bus is a campaign of NETWORK, a national Catholic social justice lobby, which was founded by 47 Catholic sisters more than 40 years ago. The group has declared its mission as, “a Catholic leader in the global movement for justice and peace — that educates, organizes and lobbies for economic and social transformation.”
