Loretto Stands with Immigrants and Refugees
Loretto stands with immigrants. We welcome those seeking refuge crossing our southern border from Mexico and deplore current U.S. policies that shun our beloved neighbors to the south and elsewhere who are in grave need. The economic exploitation and military destruction of the world’s precious resources in the regions that are home to the world’s black, brown and indigenous people create unlivable conditions forcing millions to become migrants and refugees. We strive to give help and comfort where and when we can, and ask all to prayerfully consider doing the same.
Since the arrival of the Sisters in El Paso, Texas, in 1870, Loretto has had a continual presence in the borderlands. Today, Community members continue to serve at Loretto Academy in El Paso. Loretto also actively works with our faith allies in the Arizona, California and Texas borderlands to support migrants and asylum seeking refugees.
