Nuns gather in favor of immigration

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Kentucky nuns gathered under a billboard to sing, pray and add their voices to the immigration debate.
The sisters of Loretto assembled to bring attention to their continued work for justice.
They have been focusing their attention on the plight of immigrants by using a billboard on the corner of Preston St.and Breckinridge in Smoketown.
The billboard shows a verse from the Bible, Matthew 25:35, which says, "I was a stranger and you welcomed me." They have altered the sign to cross out the word stranger and have inserted immigrant above it.
One of the sisters Barbara Nicholas said, "We are hoping to encourage our legislators to proceed with immigration reform and make things really good for all people."
The sisters of Loretto are celebrating their community's 200th anniversary this week.

Not to be confused with Sisters of Loreto.
Sisters of Loretto or the Loretto Community is a Catholic religious institute, which, according to their mission statement, "strive[s] to bring the healing Spirit of God into our world" and is committed "to improving the conditions of those who suffer from injustice, oppression, and deprivation of dignity". Based in the rural community of Nerinx, Kentucky, the organization maintains chapters in 16 U.S. states and the countries of Bolivia, Chile, China, Ghana, Peru and Pakistan. To conduct its charitable activities, the group holds NGO status with the United Nations. Strongly committed to social justice, the Loretto Community opposes nuclear weaponry and proliferation, and advocates for migrant workers and torture victims of oppressive regimes.
The Sisters of Loretto are sometimes confused with the Sisters of Loreto, whose members included Mother Teresa of Calcutta. The two orders are not related.

Tax exempt status, committing Federal Felonies, Sounds like the "Sisters of Loraza" need someone to explain the federal laws and Tax laws to them!
"I was a immigrant, and you welcomed me!"
I sure the hell didn't!
