St. Therese of Child Jesus lovingly called as Little Flower of Jesus is the Patroness of our School. Therese was born Marie Francoise and Therese Martin in France in 1873, the pampered daughter of a mother who had wanted to be a saint and a father who had wanted to be a monk.
Living a life of sanctity with childlike confidence in God and her parents, she lived as the best of all.
She died on September 30, 1897 at the age of 24 years old. She herself felt it was a blessing God allowed her to die at exactly that age.
