This traveling exhibit tells the stories of the Sisters of Loretto with their beginnings in Kentucky and then Santa Fe when four Sisters arrived there in 1852. It continues with the Sisters’ work in Colorado as they established schools, organizations and non-profits. Pueblo’s Loretto Academy was established in 1878. This unique exhibit will contain photos, text panels and 19th century Loretto objects on loan from the motherhouse located in Nerinx, Kentucky.
