St. Louis was the fifth stop on a 21-stop tour for Nuns on the Bus, a program started by the NETWORK lobby, which has nuns and their allies riding on a bus advocating for social justice across the country.

Now, the sisters find themselves at the Republican National Convention serving lemonade to attendees in hopes of enticing Republicans participating in the convention to answer three questions about the 2016 election and the future of the United States.

The "Nuns on the Bus" social justice bus tour arrives in Keiner Plaza in downtown St. Louis on Thursday, as the first stop in a seven-state journey.
