School History

Little Flower School was founded in 1962 by the Sisters of Mercy. The sisters were invited from Longford, Ireland, to begin the school by Monsignor Collins and Father John McVeigh. The school began with six grades and a total of 182 children under the direction of Mother Ursula as principal and superior.

The Sisters of Mercy remained at Little Flower School until 2012. Sister Margaret Oates was the last serving principal of the order and Sisters Elizabeth and Maura joined her in returning to Ireland in March of 2012. Throughout the fifty years of their leadership Little Flower grew to a school containing nine grade levels, including Kindergarten, and over 300 students.

The Sisters of Mercy were founded by Mother Catherine McAuley. Their core values are compassion and service and the school continues this tradition today, recognizing the charism of our founding sisters in our Mission and Student Learning Expectations.
