Loretta is a long-time resident of St. Paul, MN, and is thrilled to be continuing her work with Saint Paul’s Outreach this next year. Growing up the middle child with three brothers and a sister, Loretta had to develop a good sense of humor and attention-grabbing tactics. These skills have serviced her well over the years, especially during the two years she served with NET Ministries. It was during this time that Loretta began to further hone her people skills and learn to share Christ more readily. Following NET, she attended the University of St. Thomas where she majored in Catholic Studies with a Renaissance minor (which is actually in business despite its deceptive relation to a creative and rowdy historical era). It was through her participation with Saint Paul's Outreach during this time that Loretta felt called to do mission work. Despite wanting to spread her wings and explore the far reaches of earth serving the impoverished through mission, Loretta felt a calling, rather, to serve locally those in spiritual poverty. Saint Paul's Outreach is that avenue, and Loretta has fallen in love with our work. Other loves of Loretta’s include tea, tea parties, coffee, chocolate, baking, reading, sleeping, travel, mountains, lilacs, rain, and adventures.
