Through the years, as God continued to bless the community with vocations, four other foundations were made:

First, to Columbus, Ohio, in September 1947 with Mother Marie Genevieve at the helm:

Columbus Foundresses—1947


Second, to Little Rock, Arkansas, in 1950 guided by Mother Mary of Jesus:

Little Rock Foundresses – 1950

Third to Elysburg, Pennsylvania, in 1953 under the direction of Mother Marguerite Marie of the Sacred Heart:

Elysburg Foundresses – 1960

And last of all to Latrobe, Pennsylvania, in 1961 under the leadership of Mother Bernadette of Our Lady of Lourdes.

Our loving Father in Heaven constantly watches over those of us now at Loretto Carmel and continues to call generous young women to embrace our way of life and to follow along the holy way of St. Therese.
