100 years ago Loretto Academy in El Paso opened its doors. On the occasion of this important milestone, Mary E. “Buffy” Boesen SL writes:
"It’s hard to believe that 100 years have gone by since Mother Praxedes’s dream of Loretto Academy in El Paso became a reality.
"I am grateful to those who have gone before us, particularly Eileen Custy SL, Bernice Hys SL and Jane Clarke SL, who steered Loretto Academy in the 21st century — for almost 40% of the school’s history. I hope that the next generation continues the keen passion for education, honoring the Loretto Community’s core mission, ‘We work for justice and act for peace because the Gospel urges us.’ I pray that this great institution carries on for another 100 years."
