This edition takes you on A Courageous Journey that started with Sister Mary Wright’s ‘Courage to Move’ in 2002. This call to action urged Loreto Sisters worldwide to transcend borders and reignite their missionary spirit. Central to this call was the Mary Ward charism, aiming to create a more just world, especially for women and children. For our Province of Australia and South East Asia, this vision led to the establishment of roots in Timor-Leste.
Discover the remarkable work in Timor-Leste, where Loreto Sisters from Australia, Vietnam, and India continue their unwavering service. Mary Ward International Australia, alongside Loreto schools and our supporters, has been an integral part of this journey:
We’ve constructed a thriving preschool and a community development centre in Gari-uai.
In Ostico, we’re ensuring clean water, fresh food, and business opportunities for the community.
We’re forging strong partnerships with women’s collectives, enhancing capabilities, and ensuring sustainability.
Education and community development drive our mission to bridge the gap in human development indicators.
