Discovering the saints of New Orleans

April 8, 2015

Over the next few days, I’ll share with you some behind-the-scenes images and impressions about my time in New Orleans as Salt + Light embarks on an exciting new collaboration with the Loyola Institute for Ministry. As mentioned, in my previous post, we'll be working to develop a series that highlights the charisms (and the extraordinary work) of seven women religious communities located in the United States and in Africa.
Now, we all know that the key to success in any undertaking is to prepare, prepare, prepare. To that end, the purpose of this trip is get myself acquainted with the location(s), the history, and most importantly, the people whose story I’ll be working to tell over the course of the next two years.  My time in New Orleans promises to be filled with lots of interesting people, stories and hope. So consider yourself invited, as we take you on the road with Salt + Light.
