Report: Sisters of Bethany can stay in Santa Barbara

My sources in Santa Barbara report that the Santa Barbara News-Press (click on this post's title) this morning (Sept. 29) had a front-page article, "Nuns can stay in S.B. after all -- Sale of convent prompts outpouring of public support."

The article -- I don't have a link to the full article, because to see it you have to register and all that -- quotes a Jim Garcia of Catholic Charities of Santa Barbara as saying so many citizens wrote the Mother Superior in support of the Sisters that she now says they can stay in Santa Barbara.

I don't know any more details than this, or the accuracy of it. There is word that a grassroots citizens' group is raising money for the Sisters.
