Application Opens! You may submit your application anytime before Jan 15, 2022 to be considered a first-round applicant. This means you'll get first pick of our available placements upon entering the second phase of our screening process.
Priority Deadline. Qualified applicants will be offered an interview with program staff after their applications are received. If you submit by this time, you'll get first pick of our placements. After this date, applications are accepted on a rolling basis.
Second-Round Deadline. You may submit your application anytime between January 13 - March 1 to be considered a second-round applicant. We'll likely still have a handful of placements available, but our openings will start filling up as time goes on.
Applications accepted on a rolling basis after March 1 until all positions are filled. Sometimes we close the application process in April, other times it's open until July. Check back here frequently to make sure we're still accepting applications!
True to their mission to work for justice and act for peace, Loretto's unique spirit of openness and diversity cultivates both love of self and neighbor. This small yet fiery group of progressive Catholic women challenged me to step outside my comfort zone while simultaneously encouraging me to be true to myself. Never before have I been so challenged to love.
-Former Loretto Volunteer, 2011-2012

Check your email frequently. We'll notify you if it's getting close to the deadline and you're missing anything. We'll also let you know when we've received all application materials. Usually reference forms are the last thing to come in, so ask your references to notify you when they submit your forms so you know we have them.
Once you've submitted all application forms through the portal, we'll reach out soon to discuss next steps. The application checklist gives an overview of our entire screening process. We hope you enjoy the journey with us!
