Sisters of Loretto Heritage Center, rural Marion County, Kentucky
Loretto Heritage Center Archives and Museum seeks a professionally trained archivist with well-honed skills across the full spectrum of archival functions. Beginning as Archivist under the Heritage Center Director, the successful candidate will have opportunity and encouragement to transition to full responsibility for the Archives by successfully meeting a wide range of archival challenges.
The Loretto Heritage Center, located in central Kentucky’s historic Catholic “Holy Land,” preserves and exhibits the documentary legacy of the Sisters of Loretto, a pioneering community of American Catholic sisters unique among American religious traditions. The Loretto collections date from 1812, when three frontier women established a school and then a religious community among the first generation of Maryland settlers in Kentucky. Since the 1890s the collections have been under the professional management of sister-archivists at the Loretto Motherhouse on an 800-acre farm in rural Marion County, Kentucky.View Fullscreen
