Loretto Mission and Values at Work — Since their return to Pakistan, every year the Loretto sisters grow different vegetables in their organic garden.They grow the vegetables to share with their neighbors who do not have enough to eat. The fertile Pakistan soil and good seeds provide an excellent environment for growing their vegetables.

Every year we grow different vegetables and share them with our neighbors. Last year when I was at the Motherhouse, Nancy Wittwer very generously offered to help me to buy good seeds, which are now giving life and strength to many.

We never use any pesticides in our garden; it is organic. We are very lucky that we have fertile land and a keen interest in gardening.

It has been a Loretto practice since we moved to Pakistan that we grow vegetables and share them with those who do not have enough. We know which family needs our help, we call the mother to our house and give her the vegetables.
