Everybody has the capacity to be open and available.
If our eyes, ears and hearts are open there is much we can do.
– Toni Matha IBVM
Through social ministries the Loreto Sisters and their colleagues, in collaboration with other organisations, work to build a just and equitable society where all people can live and work and become fully and freely the human persons God wants them to be. (IBVM Const Vol ii.2.8)
Today, Loreto contributes to a broad range of social ministries including community development work, advocacy and assistance to refugees, asylum seekers, indigenous communities, people in prison and others struggling with issues such as homelessness, family dysfunction, ill health and grief issues.
Loreto Sisters and their colleagues are actively involved in planning, providing, advocating for and funding a variety of welfare and social services including child, youth and family services.
