Anna Koop SL and Mary Ann McGivern SL recently visited the Loretto Community in Pakistan for seven weeks. Anna and Mary Ann wrote colorful and informative missives to keep the Community apprised of their experiences. Enjoy these excerpts, along with a sampling of Mary Ann’s photos.
Shortly after their arrival, Anna wrote, “Life here is centered around community, prayer and work. My day begins with coffee, of course, and then praying with the community at 7:30. We eat all three meals together, oftentimes in silence, as seems to be the practice of the culture. There is a real intention and attention around most of what is done. We have afternoon tea together and then pray a rosary. The evening meal is around 7:30.”
