“I understand how all the flowers He has created are beautiful, how the splendor of the rose and the whiteness of the Lily do not take away the perfume of the little violet or the delightful simplicity of the daisy. I understand that if all flowers wanted to be roses, nature would lose her springtime beauty, and the fields would no longer be decked out with little wildflowers. And so it is in the world of souls, Jesus’ garden. He willed to create great souls comparable to lilies and roses, but He has created smaller ones and these must be content to be daisies or violets destined to give joy to God’s glances when He looks down at His feet. Perfection consists in doing His will, in being what He wills us to be.”
– St. Therese of Lisieux, the Little Flower
Inspired by our patroness, St. Therese of Lisieux, we partner with parents to help each child see the unique gift they are. We provide a warm, nurturing, safe environment where children are valued, respected, and important members of our community. Each child, created by God, is recognized and accepted as an individual with his/her unique qualities, needs, and pattern of growth.
