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.

Loretto loves music! Loretto members share some of their favorites in this week's web feature and on Facebook.

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.

This week we are sharing Loretto members favorite songs! Loretto Co-member Theresa Kinealy says her favorite is the beloved Irish ballad “Danny Boy” sung by the legendary crooner Bing Crosby. She loves the song because it's been a favorite in her family for many years!

The melody alone is immediately recognizable to most people. The poignant song tells the story of a family bidding farewell to their son, who is leaving for war. Theresa says, though, that it’s really a story of a young man in Ireland falling in love. We think that’s a fine interpretation, too.
