Loreto Sisters have lived in Ho Chi Minh City for over 19 years and work in a variety of ministries. There are currently five professed Vietnamese Sisters.
Sr Hoa manages St Mary’s Hostel, offering accommodation for disadvantaged young women from the countryside who attend university in the city. Sr Thoa is engaged in a range of pastoral ministries in a very poor parish. Sr Vi is a highly experienced nurse who works in a local clinic, while Sr Trinh holds a Bachelor of Communications and has recently completed her studies in Philosophy. She is now pursuing further studies in Theology.
Sr Aithien is the Executive Director of Loreto Vietnam. She has recently returned from Timor-Leste, where she was the Director of ‘Centro Loreto,’ a pre-school and community centre in Gari-uai, near Bacau, that supports and encourages the development of local teachers who provide quality education for young children.
