Sister Anne (Cajetan) Morehouse
What first drew you to the Racine Dominican community?
Experiences with the sisters at St. Bernard’s in Madison, where I attended grade school.
What has kept you in the community all these years?
The continued focus on our mission: committed to Truth, compelled to Justice. The community’s dedication to social issues of the time and giving me the opportunity to work with various cultures – African American, Native American, different geographic and economic groups.
What is one particularly cherished memory of your years in ministry?
Receiving the eagle feather from the Menomonee tribe. Traditionally only warriors are given this honor. The tribe gave it to me, saying “you dedicated yourself to our children; you gave yourself to us.”
What is one thing people today should know about the Racine Dominicans?
We continue to put our resources and energy into our commitment to justice. The mission of Bethany Apartments is just one example of this.
What do you enjoy doing at this time of your life?
Interacting with people and reading. And, of course, giving folks a hard time!
