This message is from a Past Pupil of Loreto Rumbek, South Sudan …..
On this special day for women, I would like to acknowledge one brave and strong woman who is working tirelessly to nurture young women in South Sudan. That woman is non other than Sr Orla Treacy and all the Loreto sisters all over the world. Thank you for your work and may God continue to bless you. We are all proud of Mary Ward and I promise you through almighty God that South Sudan will have great women because of you. We are the source of strength and agent of change in our society.
I still believe in Mary Ward saying, ‘women in time to come will do great things!’
Happy Women’s day!
