In Memory of Her: Louise Akers, S.C.

WATER accompanies the Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati in mourning the death of Louise Akers. She was our longtime friend and colleague in the Women-Church Convergence.

Louise’s warm and welcoming presence, her steadfast commitment to gender equality, and her willingness to take a stance for justice made her a model of a faithful woman. Changes in church and society are linked to her name forever.

May her spirit inspire us to new forms of creative justice seeking.
