Catholic nuns’ bus tour concludes in nation’s capital
FPL provided media support for the “Nuns on the Bus” tour
The two-week, 2,700-mile tour concluded with a prayer service and press conference on Capitol Hill.
The nuns have been compared by some to rock stars, greeted by screaming fans holding signs and wearing commemorative T-shirts. That was also the scene outside the United Methodist Building on Monday as scores of attendees cheered the arriving bus.
“Nuns on the bus speak for not just Catholics, not for Christians only, not for Jews. They speak for all of us,” said Sayyid Sayeed, national interfaith director of the Islamic Society of North America.
