It is with deep gratitude that I celebrate the closing event of the 75th
year of Little Flower’s existence. The dedication of all who have served
and those who continue to serve at this wonderful faith oriented high
school have made us the women we are today. The gift of our education
is something that no one will ever take from us, as we promote the goodness
and kindness of God each day of our lives. Thank God for our parents who
knew the best place for us to enjoy our high school hears.
It is my ardent prayer that Little Flower will continue its marvelous
history of educating young woman who will make a positive difference in our world.
St. Therese has showed us by example how to follow Jesus in her simple
way. How blessed we are when we give what we receive and empower others
on their life’s journey.
My best friends to this day are those who shared life with me at Little
Flower Catholic High School for Girls.
Thank you to all who continue to enrich the lives of each young woman
who enters the wonderful halls of Little Flower High School.

Congratulations and many blessings to all at Little Flower. Your principal, Sister Donna is the best and has achieved much for the success of LF’s going forward.
I am 75, and have been blessed to have attended Little Flower in the late 70’s, which was the happiest time of my young life.
I pray for continued success in keeping Little Flower High School, open and educating our young women.
I am 75, the same age as this wonderful high school. Nothing in my life has given so much to me as my time at Little Flower High School
Congratulations to Sister Donna Shallo for preparing this wonderful celebration. Sister Donna is a true believer in Little Flower’s
mission and works for the success that has been achieved.
Blessings and thanks to all and continued success in our journey with St. Therese.
Congratulations Students, Parents, and Faculty.
You must have a great principal!
Blessings for a wonderful future full of hope.
