We celebrate our Jubilarians’ faithfulness – to their vows, to their commitment to the Loretto Community, to the people of God and to one another. Each of their lives is a reflection of Loretto’s mission: “We work for justice and act for peace because the Gospel urges us.” Learn more about the Loretto Community.
