Loreto Convent, Lucknow is an educational institution for girls founded in 1872 and located in Lucknow, the capital of the Indian State of Uttar Pradesh. Loreto Convent is under the management of the Sisters of the Institute of the Blessed Virgin Mary, usually known as the Loreto Nuns. Boys were admitted up to the 1960s. The institution maintains a deep concern for the unprivileged. Loreto was founded in 1616 by an English woman, Mary Ward (1585-1645). It pioneered a new type of religious life, which undertook the education of girls as its main work. The 18th century saw the spread in development of the Institute on England and Europe. It was introduced into Ireland by Frances Teresa Ball, who in 1821 established the first House of the Irish branch there. She called it Loreto, the name by which all subsequent foundations spread all over the world are still known.show more
