After the liturgy all students received a red rose in honor of the October 1st feast day of Little Flower’s patroness, Saint Therese.
Dr. Carol Cary, Superintendent for Secondary Schools said, “The Office of Catholic Education warmly congratulates Little Flower Catholic High School for Girls on its 75th anniversary. Little Flower has a rich history as a Catholic secondary school in Philadelphia, educating young women and equipping them with the tools they need to thrive both academically and spiritually. Guided by its patroness Saint Therese, and rooted in the Gospel of Jesus Christ, may Little Flower continue to be a shining example of Catholic education in Philadelphia for years to come.”
