For almost 80 years, Tucson's Benedictine Monastery was home to the Sisters of Perpetual Adoration. About a year ago, they sold the property to local developer Ross Rulney. The property has been vacant since, until recently.
Nancy Montoya reported on the latest group to find sanctuary within the monastery's walls: migrant families seeking asylum. Several weeks ago, Rulney gave Catholic Community Services permission to operate a temporary shelter in the monastery. Since then, about 800 families have received help. Montoya spoke to a woman from Guatemala who was reunited with her sister at the monastery, as well as members of Catholic Community Services who are overseeing operations at the shelter.
