Sisters of Loretto

When: March 22-July 27 2013

The Sisters of Loretto ain't playin'. You've got Sister Mary Ann McGivern, who, according to the New York Times, in 1987 stormed the annual meeting of defense contractor Honeywell to accuse the company of "fueling the arms race" in "the hope for profit." Then you've got Sister Jacqueline G. Wexler, who the same newspaper says took on the Vatican, in 1967, to win autonomy from the church for Webster College, a Catholic women's school in Missouri. They're lively ladies, and the El Pueblo History Museum (301 N. Union Ave., Pueblo, historycolorado.org) pays tribute to that heritage with the traveling exhibit Sisters of Loretto: 200 Years Working for Peace, Acting for Justice. Adult admission today, or any Tuesday through Saturday until July 27, is $5. — Bryce Crawford
