Our Mission

Little Flower Church and School has been an integral part of West Pensacola since 1945. Located on the corner of 65th Ave and Lillian Highway, our parish family serves the families of Myrtle Grove. As a Catholic Parish, we seek to live out our mission by proclaiming the Gospel, and witnessing to the presence of Christ. People are drawn to Little Flower because of our rich Catholic tradition, our strong devotion to our patroness St. Thérèse of Lisieux, and our formation as missionary disciples of Christ.

we ask for the help of

St. Thérèse of Lisieux

Our patroness and guide

St. Thérèse of Lisieux, a 19th century saint and doctor of the Church, is the patroness and guide of Little Flower parish. She is the originator of the Little Way, a way of living out one's baptism in the ordinariness of everyday life. The example of her life, along with her intercession, helps us at Little Flower Catholic Church and School to keep our eyes fixed intently on Jesus, striving to become missionary disciples of Christ.
