Outreach

The goal of the Outreach Team is to support and strengthen our Loretto relationships within the Community and with others who share our values. We will work toward this goal by creating and supporting opportunities and strategies to share our legacy, spirituality, community, and shared commitment to peace and justice with individuals and allied groups, both within and beyond the Loretto Community.
