Why Loreto

Our Loreto Family

Global Loreto Network

Together we are over 150 Loreto schools worldwide. This extensive network brings us both strength and unity, providing a platform from which to share resources and best educational practices on a national and global scale. Loreto Ministries Limited (LML) is the entity established by the Loreto Province of Australia and South East Asia for the governance of Loreto schools in Australia. Governance is exercised according to the principles of partnership, subsidiarity, and stewardship.

Many of our activities support Mary Ward International Australia (MWIA), the Australian and International development organisation of the Loreto Sisters. MWIA strives to make a difference in education, community development, human rights, social justice, and the empowerment of women and children.

The Loreto Charism of Mary Ward is celebrated through focusing on the qualities of
freedom, justice, sincerity, verity and felicity.
