Loretto Spotlight Video – Jessie Rathburn CoL
The healing of Earth is directly tied to the healing of our bodies, our selves.Jessie Rathburn
Jessie Rathburn, Loretto’s earth education and advocacy coordinator, introduces the Loretto Community Carbon Reduction Fund in our newest Spotlight video. The fund was started in 2019 in honor of Anthony Mary Sartorius SL who planted numerous trees at the Loretto Motherhouse in Kentucky. The fund has helped support many projects, including a solar installation in Virginia, Indigenous tree-planting in Guatemala and gardens in a low-income neighborhood in Cleveland. Just last year, grants were made to groups in Guatemala, Haiti, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda and the U.S.
