Working for justice and acting for peace since 1812
The Loretto Community
We are the Congregation of the Sisters of Loretto and Loretto Co-members. We work for justice and act for peace because the Gospel urges us.
The congregation of the Sisters of Loretto at the Foot of the Cross was founded on the Kentucky frontier in 1812, making it one of the first Roman Catholic communities of women religious established in the United States.
Living our mission
Today, our Sisters and Co-members continue to live out the Loretto Community’s mission to “work for justice and act for peace because the Gospel urges us.”
