Loretto’s Second Century

Posted on March 21, 2018, by Loretto Community

“A Century of Change,” a book initiated by PJ Manion with the writing of 20 Loretto community members, was published just in time for the 2012 Loretto Jubilee.

Judi Jennings, Executive Director of the Kentucky Women’s Foundation, had this to say:

This book is a shining beacon to all who are engaged in the quest for peace and justice in our world today. It tells the story of the second hundred years of the Loretto Community, rooted in rural Kentucky but now reaching around the globe.

Yet the story addresses universal questions, too: What does it mean to live in community? How can individuals work for justice and act for peace? How can we collectively find peaceful and respectful ways to resolve divisive issues? Many voices speak throughout these pages but the tone and content are always clear, considered, thought provoking and action oriented. This book is a must read for all who care about women, faith, and social justice—past, present, and future.
