The Sisters of the Blessed Bicycles

KC Star columnist Mike Hendricks recently wrote about a group of nuns who had a large pile of bicycles they wanted to fix up and distribute.

Today he wrote a follow-up column:

Remember the Sisters of St. Francis of the Holy Eucharist, or, as I dubbed them, the Sisters of the Blessed Bicycles?

Last Monday’s column focused on a problem facing that Independence-based religious order. The sisters had about 150 used bikes in various states of disrepair that were destined for poor kids half a world away. But they had no one to fix them.

Boy, did you come through. . . .

So many volunteers stopped by to help that two-thirds of the bicycles were road-ready by Friday.
