"Nuns on the Bus" rolls into Cincinnati today

"Nuns on the Bus, sponsored by a group of Catholic social justice activists who have been critical of the budget-cutting plans of GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney, will kick off a six-day tour of Ohio with a stop in Cincinnati today.

The bus will be at the Working in Neighborhoods Economic Learning Center at 1814 Dreman Ave. in South Cumminsville at noon.

"Nuns on the Bus" is sponsored by NETWORK, a Catholic social justice organization. Organizers say the bus will be stopping at social service agencies throughout Ohio "that will be harmed by federal budget cuts and will call for Democrats and Republican to support a faithful budget that affirms the life of all God's children - not just the wealthiest few."

One of the organizers of the Ohio tour is Sister Monica McGloin, a Dominican nun who appeared in an Obama campaign web ad.

"Nuns on the Bus" conducted a nine-state tour this summer. In Ohio, the bus has stops planned in Dayton, Lima, Columbus, Toledo, Fremont, Cleveland, Athens and Marietta before returning to Cincinnati on Monday.
