My friend Lea Koesterer suggested her friend Lois for one of our evenings, so I am glad to pass along the following from Lea–
Lois Aceto, a Racine Dominican Sister, is a seasoned social justice activist. Her first book is entitled “Journeying Toward Justice.” She and I became acquainted at the Siena Center of Racine, Wisconsin. During her years living in a barrio as a missionary in La Paz, Bolivia, she survived earthquakes, three revolutions, and was arrested by Interpol. She helped children to thrive by founding an orphanage and setting up a medical clinic in the barrio. As part of her training as a nurse, Lois stayed six weeks in a leprosarium in Valencia, Spain. Wherever she has found herself throughout her life, Lois has fully embraced her charism “committed to truth and compelled to justice.” She continues to do so today in Wisconsin where she has a prison ministry and promotes restorative justice ideals.
