ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) - A 13 day, seven state bus tour will begin today in St. Louis, but you will not find school kids on this bus.

Catholic nuns will be the riders on this tour. Their mission is to lobby for economic justice across the seven states that they will travel through. The tour will end with a pep rally for Pope Francis in Washington D.C. on Sept. 22.

More than a dozen Catholic Sisters will experience, absorb, and respond to the lived reality of families and communities living at the margins in response to Pope Francis’ call to transform our economy.
