“Nuns on the Bus” rolls into Friday Forum at the University YMCA

Feb. 8 | 12 Noon | “Nuns on the Bus” | University YMCA | Latzer Hall

This Friday at noon , ‘Nuns on the bus’ kicks off the University YMCA’s Friday Forum series, “Faith in Action.”  Sister Mary Ellen-Lacy of the ‘Nuns on the Bus’ tour will be talking about the work Catholic Sisters do to meet the needs of people at the economic margins and revealing how federal budget cuts proposed by Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) and passed by the House of Representatives would hurt struggling families here in Illinois.

The tour was meant to focus attention on the enormous moral choices facing our country.  Do we choose to be a nation of individualism and fear where the rich get richer at the expense of those in need? Or do we reclaim the principles of our founders and work together for all the people to form a more perfect union?

“Nuns on the Bus” is a part of the Friday Forum Spring 2013 lecture series, “Faith in Action.”  featuring speakers from across the spectrum of faith traditions who are compelled by their faith to engage in bold and creative forms of action.
