Landing Day

Updated: Sep 20, 2021

This year is the 200th anniversary of Teresa Ball founding the Institute and it is under her leadership that the Loretto Sisters came to Toronto, landing at the harbour on September 16 1847.

And so, today we joyfully celebrate our 174th year in Canada.


“O Holy Wisdom, Soaring Power, encompass us with wings unfurled,

and carry us, encircling all, above, below, and through the world.”
