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.

Living our mission

Our priority concerns are immigration justice, care for Earth and the abolition of nuclear weapons.

Loretto Community members work for justice and act for peace in the United States, at the United Nations and around the world, including in education, healthcare, spiritual accompaniment, the empowerment of women, environmental stewardship, anti-discrimination, land acknowledgement and advocacy.

Loretto Sister Johanna Brian lived in El Paso for 26 years and grew to love it. She said she cried when she left. She and family were absolutely in awe of the wide open spaces and never got tired of looking outside. She feels it is necessary to have a sense of wonder “… to keep that alive is just so important to me.”
