A Welcome from the Daughters of Charity

Welcome to Mother of Sorrows School! Mother of Sorrows is one of four Catholic elementary schools in Southern California that is sponsored by the Daughters of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul. With a membership of more than 19,000 Catholic Sisters worldwide, the Daughters of Charity touch lives through the ministries of education, health care, social and pastoral services.

The Daughters of Charity are proud to have been a part of Mother of Sorrows School’s 66-year history since 1999, when Sister Martha Garcia, D.C. was named principal of the school. In 2002, the Daughters of Charity increased their involvement by co-sponsoring the school with the Archdiocese of Los Angeles.

With the guidance of the Daughters of Charity, Mother of Sorrows School mission is to provide the finest education in an inclusive Catholic community of faith. In the spirit of our Vincentian founders, St. Vincent de Paul, St. Louise de Marillac, and St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, Mother of Sorrows School will continue to minister to underserved families and educate students to lead and serve.

God Bless,
