On Saturday, February 8th 2020, the Feast Day of Saint Josephine Bakhita, Pope Francis launched the ‘Super Nuns’ online campaign, an initiative conceived by the Galileo Foundation with Edelman PR in New York for Talitha Kum. By creating a page on the popular online site, Patreon.com, cartoon and anime artists are invited to submit work which depicts the courageous work done by the sister of Talitha Kum in the fight against human trafficking around the world.
Pope Francis met Sr Pat Murray of the UISG and Sr Gabriella Bottani of Talitha Kum, John McCaffrey of the Galileo Foundation, Jimmie Stone of Edelman PR and Steve Powers, also known as ESPO, the first artist whose work features on the sisters’ Patreon page. Steve’s mural was originally painted on a wall in Brooklyn, New York and as well as presenting a gift copy to the Holy Father, Pope Francis signed a copy for the campaign before officially launching the SuperNuns page on Patreon.
