Loretto Respects the Nearer and Farther Neighbor

Respect for all. That’s the Loretto way. We are all God’s children. We reach out to our neighbors near and far and welcome all to our table. Loretto’s constitutions state, “It is important that nothing in our lives cuts us off from other human beings. Rather, we try to live so that everything about us, our words and works and manner of living, promotes understanding and peace among ourselves and others.” It’s how Jesus lived. It’s the right thing to do. It’s what we do.

    I attended Loretto Academy as a boarder from Douglas, Arizona. I graduated in 1963. I love Loretto and have beautiful memories of Sister Teresa (English), Sister Marion Walter who taught us how to clean, Sister Rita Marie (Biology), Sister Lauren in charge of boarders, Sister Matthew Marie, etc. I live in McAllen, Tx. Thank you Sisters of Loretto for all that you were and are. I loved the habit because I am old school. Best Educators !
