Loretto College alumnae turned out in the hundreds to celebrate the school’s anniversary on Saturday, May 14th. Cardinal Collins celebrated Mass at St. Clare Catholic Church.  In his Homily, he praised the Loretto order for their work and thanked them, personally, for the education he received.  The Loretto Sisters were front and centre for the entire celebration with the Canadian Provincial Superior, St. Patricia Grant, speaking on their behalf at the reception back at the school.  His Worship, Mayor John  Tory, attended the reception where he spoke to many of those gathered, offering a unique perspective as a former UTS student who recalled travelling over to Loretto Brunswick after school to meet the girls, much to the amusement of the alumnae at the celebration.  TCDSB Trustee Frank D’Amico offered congratulations on behalf of the Board of Trustees. He and Director of Education, Angela Gauthier, thanked the Loretto order for their work on behalf of Catholic education. MPP Cristina Martins, who herself is a Loretto alumna, presented congratulations on behalf of the Province, while enjoying a reunion with her former classmates.  City Councillor Cesar Palacio presented greetings on behalf of the City.  Other congratulations included a letter from the Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau.
