Catholic nuns in Colorado Springs building safe house for sex trafficking victims

THE GAZETTE — Practically everyone knows about the world’s oldest profession, but not many people seem to know about human sex trafficking, a nefarious deviation on prostitution.

“It’s similar, but it’s not the same thing,” says Sister Rose Ann Barmann, a Benedictine nun at Benet Hill Monastery in Black Forest. “Victims as young as babies are forced or sold and held captive in modern-day slavery.”

Nuns from the Benedictine and Franciscan orders in El Paso County are building the state’s first safe house for women over age 18 who have been victims of sex trafficking.
