Emma is from Indianapolis, IN and graduated from Marian University in 2015 where she studied Biology, Sociology, Pastoral Leadership and Psychology. This year Emma is working at Family Care Health Centers in St. Louis with Dr. Abbe, a dear friend of Loretto.
My year of fun and fellowship in the Loretto program has revealed to me the sheer beauty and depth of collaboration and community, something I did not fully anticipate for this year. And in this development, I’ve found the strength to grow and understand myself - a strength that comes from three areas of my life: my house, the Loretto Community, and my city of St. Louis...
In my kooky house
With the spunky Loretto sisters and Community members
St. Louis at large
I am so thankful and inspired by the community that surrounds me. Thankful for the way they make me squirm and uncomfortably consider new views. I'm thankful for the ways we grow in experiences together and for the way they fill my world with love and support.
In Their Own Words
We invite you to get to know Loretto Volunteers and the program here. Volunteers introduce themselves and reflect on their experiences.
