The history of our school

Who is St. Therese of Liseaux?


Saint Therese of Lisieux was born Marie Francoise-Therese Martin on January 2, 1873, in Alencon, France. She had seven siblings, but only four survived to adulthood (and all five of the sisters became nuns).

Therese was a cheerful, happy child who also suffered terribly. Her faith was formed by the devout faith of her parents and sisters - they prayed together daily, and led a life of service to the poor, the sick, and the elderly. 

There is much we can learn from the life of our beloved Little Flower. You can learn more about St. Therese and the Society of the Little Flower by visiting the website:
