Loretto Motherhouse staff shine! Loretto thanks you!

Posted on May 15, 2023, by Loretto Community

This week we continue to highlight the many unique and brilliant “stars” of Loretto that shine at our Kentucky Motherhouse. A little riff on Elizabeth Barrett Browning … How can we thank you? Let us try and count the ways, esteemed Loretto staff!

Where would any of us be without our untiring and conscientious Loretto finance staff, our energetic maintenance staff, our zealous farm staff and our diligent and caring Loretto Living Center staff. How many times have we experienced the warm hospitality that emanates from these wonderful individuals who support and care for us each and every day. We would also have to admit that there are not enough words or ways to show our thanks.

Speaking for all of Loretto, we want to say thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all your absolutely amazing efforts to make Loretto a shining light for all to see. Truly it takes a village for Loretto to reach the goals of love and compassion for all. Thank you for being part of our village.

As I Am the Way, Loretto’s Constitutions, #53, states, “With all those who hear the word of God and keep it, with all people of good will, we aspire to proclaim everywhere the goodness of God.”
