Glenmary Home Mission Sisters of America
(G.H.M.S.) The Glenmary Sisters provide mis-
sionary services to all God’s children in the
rural areas of the Southern United States and
Appalachia. Serving in areas where the Catholic
population is less than 2 percent, their ministry
is guided by the Corporal Works of Mercy to:
feed the hungry, give drink to the thirsty, clothe
the naked, shelter the homeless, visit the sick,
visit those in prison, and bury the dead. Through
the Glenmary Sister’s ministry of presence and
willingness to share in the daily struggles of the
families where they serve, the people of these areas
come to understand the love and concern of the
Catholic Church and their own dignity as children
of God. Contact: Barbara O’Nan, e-mail: barbara@

Institute of the Blessed Virgin Mary
(I.B.V.M.) [Loretto/Loreto Sis-
ters] IBVM Sisters are an apostolic
community of Catholic women present
in 26 countries across six continents. We live our
Ignatian spirituality—contemplative in action—so
cherished by our founder, Mary Ward, who in 1609
believed that “women in time to come would do
great things.” We believe that women have great
gifts to offer in promoting freedom, justice and in-
tegrity within church and society. We discern and
embrace God’s desire in today’s changing and chal-
lenging times. We serve in educational, pastoral, and
social ministries as parish ministers, religious educa-
tion directors, teachers, spiritual directors, counsel-
ors, campus ministers, caregivers to women in need,
and ministries among immigrants. With single-
hearted love we hold ourselves open and ready to
undertake whatever is for the greater glory of God
and the good of those we serve. Contact Sr. Claire
