The Loretto Volunteer Program

The Loretto Volunteer Program pairs volunteers with social justice organizations for a formative year of service. Through meaningful work and communal living, volunteers live out the Loretto Community’s mission to work for justice and act for peace – guided by the core values of social justice, community, simplicity and spirituality.

Volunteers live in community houses in Washington, DC and St. Louis, MO – where they work in social services, education, advocacy, media and healthcare. They connect with Loretto members in formal and informal settings throughout the year. The program is a key ministry for the Loretto Community to continue its mission to “work for justice and act for peace.”
