Sr. Loretto entered our community in 1972, transferring from her previous order of the Congregation of the Immaculate Conception in New Orleans, where she made vows on August 10, 1936. She became a professed monastic on June 17, 1973. After serving here as a teacher for approximately 10 years, she joined the Core Staff at our Hesychia House of Prayer in 1981-82 and again from 1985-1995. After returning to the Monastery in 1995, she helped in the St. Scholastica Bakery until retiring in 1997.

She is survived by her brother, Edward Arceneaux of Convent, LA; and four sisters-in-law, Quinnie and Blanche Arceneaux of Baton Rouge, LA., Thelma Arceneaux of Port Allen, LA, and Jeanne Arceneaux of Labadieville, LA; cousins, nieces and nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews; and by her Sisters in community.
