Missionary nun serves in circus

This story on CNN about life in the circus focused on how life for full-time traveling families is similar to and different from life for other families. The article discusses living arrangements, work schedules, the fact that a licensed teacher runs a one-room school for children traveling with the group.

A heavy transition in the latter part of the story reads "With any traveling family, there will inevitably be spiritual needs. Sister Dorothy Fabritze is a full-time circus worker and Catholic nun who holds religion classes, working across cultures, sharing the circus lifestyle."

The rest of the story focuses on the religion angle.
