In the spirit of Mary Ward, Loreto Normanhurst encourages young women to do much, seeking truth and doing justice.

Four hundred years ago, our foundress Mary Ward faced the uncertainty and unrest prevalent in her society with courage and a fervent conviction that women in time to come will do much.

She did so firm in the knowledge that women are a reflection of the Glory of God and to deny this is to deny the full humanity of women everywhere.
