Louise is a native of Baltimore who entered the Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati at age 35. In her journey as a daughter of Elizabeth Seton, Louise has ministered as a chaplain, mission leader, professor, and medical ethicist in Albuquerque, Colorado Springs, St. Louis, Baltimore, and now Cincinnati. She earned a Master’s in Theology (St. Mary’s Ecumenical Institute in Baltimore) and PhD in Health Care Ethics (St. Louis University). To her surprise, she was elected to the Leadership Council of her congregation in 2011 and is currently serving a second term. Her particular areas of leadership include Associates, Peace and Justice, and EarthConnection. Brief experiences in Cuba, Mexico, Guatemala and El Salvador have widened her horizons and perspectives. She has a passion for social justice and the inclusion of women in all the ministries of the Church. She lives with two of her congregation’s newest members at Visitation House, an intentional community committed to radical hospitality. Most of her family members live in Baltimore and she visits every chance she gets.
Jesus was doing just what he was anointed to do. He was opening the eyes of those before him to their racism and nationalism. He was trying to set them free of their captivity, reminding them that God’s love extends to everyone – and so should theirs.VIEW
