The Loretto Volunteer Program is a project of the Loretto Community, a welcoming and inclusive Catholic order of sisters with a 200-year history of advocating for peace, women’s equality and solutions to social injustices.
Loretto Volunteers serve for a year at social justice organizations while living in intentional community with other volunteers. All the while, volunteers find ways to connect to their spirituality and practice simplicity in every day life. We are rooted in the creative spirituality of the Loretto Community. We consider earth care, activism, and justice work as deeply spiritual pursuits. Though we have grown out of Catholic social justice teaching, we proudly welcome volunteers of any faith, as well as those who are struggling with the idea of religion and God. All volunteers must simply be open to exploring a variety of spiritual practices that reflect their community’s backgrounds and interests.
In these ways, and in many others, Loretto Volunteers explore and embody to the program’s core values of intentional community, spirituality, simple living, and social justice.
We welcome individuals of all backgrounds, races, ethnicities, classes, abilities, sexual orientations, gender identities and expressions, and faiths.
