and All That Jazz A Story of Dominican Sisters in Louisiana
Maris Stella McKeown, OP
Cabra Dominicans and All That Jazz tells the story of how a group
of Irish Dominican sisters accepted an urgent plea for help in 1968,
and of how Cabra Sisters have worked in Louisiana since then. It
tells of the courage required to set out, often at short notice,
into new environments and to face new challenges. It tells of identifying
new needs and of branching out into new ministries to meet these
Cabra Dominicans and All That Jazz tells also of how, while working
in new environments, the sisters came to appreciate elements of their
Dominican vocation in new and deeper ways. It recalls how the renewal
process within religious life prompted by Vatican II enriched the
sisters’ lives and prompted them to widen their horizons. It
shows how the ministries to which they committed themselves developed
in response to people’s needs and to the sisters’ renewed
sense of vocation.
Cabra Dominicans and All That Jazz celebrates the gifts of the Cabra
Sisters who worked, and continue to work in Louisiana, and of the
people to whom they minister.
Since the time of St Dominic, more than 800 years ago, Dominicans have been
living and sharing the message of the Gospel. Today thousands of sisters,
nuns, priests, brothers, associates, and laity serve in more than 100 countries
around the globe.
