More than 200 Catholics from Kansas City, Mo., wore white and held signs to honor American nuns on Tuesday, June 19. Many attendees said they were there to support and thank the sisters, who are under a Vatican crackdown. The event was organized by local residents and the nationwide organization Call to Action, a liberal lay Catholic movement. Photos by Sally Morrow/RNS.
