Excerpt from Superintendent Gwen Byrd announcement:
The Department of Catholic Education in the Archdiocese of Mobile continues to monitor the pandemic in Mobile, as well as, nationwide. We now know that we will not be returning to our school buildings this school year. I know that your children will be disappointed, as they surely miss their friends and all that school life provides. In fact, all of us want life as we know it to return to “normal” but unfortunately we are powerless in making that happen. So, in our own way we forge on and we will develop our own “new normal.”
Little Flower families will be updated via email regarding plans to complete our school year. We love an miss you all and together we will make it and make it better!!

The Light of the Loop
Little Flower Families,
I am so proud and excited that you have selected Little Flower Catholic School for your student. Although Catholic schools have grown and changed over the years, they continue to be a beacon of what is good and right. My mission as a Catholic school leader is to continue to listen, learn, love, teach and grow in the tradition of the faith. I believe I can inspire and nurture the teachers under my care so they can inspire and nurture faithfully our children, our future. I believe in listening to my heart, learning from my mistakes, loving unconditionally, teaching with abandonment and growing closer to God daily. With a glad heart and hope filled spirit I believe in Catholic schools.
Your choice of Little Flower Catholic School has shown that you too believe in Catholic schools to provide a foundation of faith, discipline, diversity and academics for all students. Little Flower’s dedicated teachers, staff and administration along with the pastoral leadership of Fr. John Lynes promises to partner with parents, who are the primary educators of children. Parents support us with your time, your talents and treasures every day. We are truly grateful.
As the school year begins, I promise my door is always open for you and your family. Together we are
Preparing your children for college, career and heaven.
Sincerely in Christ,
Alesa A. Weiskopf
“The Catholic school finds its true justification in the mission of the Church; it is based on an educational philosophy in which faith, culture and life are brought into harmony.”
(The Religious Dimension of Education in a Catholic School, Congregation for Catholic Education, 1988, para. 34)
