    Inspired by the national Nuns on the Bus movement begun in Washington, D.C., local women religious boarded two buses Oct. 16 and, joined by dozens of supporters, embarked on a tour of social-ministry sites throughout Rochester. The daylong tour, which was organized by the School Sisters of Notre Dame, Sisters of Mercy and Sisters of St. Joseph, stopped at St. Joseph's House of Hospitality, St. Michael Church, Bethany House and St. Charles Settlement House, among other locations.
