In search of loretto's charism
Budding radio journalist and Loretto Volunteer Melissa Feito takes a look at the charism of Loretto in her latest audio doc for the Catholic Volunteer Network's Serving with Sisters blog. Melissa quickly discovers that there really is no single, streamlined definition of the community's charism, but instead a chorus of voices backed by spirit and connection that bring their own gifts and insights to the table. Take a listen!
Melissa Feito is from Miami, FL and graduated in 2016 from Tufts University in Medford, MA with a major in English and a double minor in Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies and Communication & Media Studies. Melissa is serving at Interfaith Voices, a public radio show about religion news in Washington, D.C.

Wonderful piece! The banner was made by Bob Strobridge, who is a co-member who lives in France. He does most of the wonderful banners we use. I am going to e-mail this to him--he will love it.

Thank you! This was published to Nerinx alumnae facebook site and it was what I needed today! Even at 40 plus, Loretto is home...Loretto was my foundation...much of who I am, how I have lived, and my meaningful relationships were founded in Loretto. Thank you Thank you!

Melissa,your piece inspired me, captivated me, and like Loretto's charism,while no words can describe it, instills in me an infusion of spirit that has carried me along since I was a teenager and now in my eighties, I still "swing' with it and will forever!
