CLEVELAND --  After three days of travelling across the state of Ohio, "Ohio Nuns on the Bus" brought their passion for people here to Cleveland. 

The sisters weren't so shy about expressing their concerns over proposed policies. "This idea that we should give tax breaks to the wealthy and take away from programs... well that just doesn't make any sense," said Sister Monica McGloin. 

Politics aside, nuns say they worry most about how our society's most vulnerable people will be impacted.  These are communities the nuns serve on a daily basis.   

Sister Mary Wendeln participated in the original "Nuns on the Bus" tour that traveled from Iowa to Washington D.C. She helped organize a smaller scale campaign here in Ohio.

"We need to bring the topic of the poor back into the conversation on this electoral election season," said Sister Wendeln. 

They weren't telling people how to vote, only that it was important to do so. 

"People don't know what to listen to and what we're saying is our budget can't be balanced on the backs of the poor," said Sister Wendeln.

She added, "I think it is very successful because we come with a message that we as Catholic sisters want to change the rhetoric in the state of Ohio."
