Welcome to Holy Innocents Parish School website. It has been created to give you a good sense of our mission and how it is expressed in our daily life. It is our hope that if what you read and see here resonates with what you want for your child, for your family, and for yourself, you will “come and see” (John 1:39).

Pastor’s Welcome

Dear Friends:

Welcome to Holy innocents Parish school, an educational outreach of Holy Innocents Parish which was established on December 12, 1923. In 1927, the Venerable Mother Maria Luisa Josefa of the Most Blessed Sacrament, foundress of the Carmelite Sisters of the Most Sacred Heart, arrived at our parish as a refugee from the persecution of the Catholic Church by the Mexican government. 35 years later, her spiritual daughters were present when Holy Innocents Parish School opened its doors to its first students. Since then, the Carmelite Sisters have staffed our school, along with faithful and professional lay staff.

Our school provides a safe and serene environment for its students, from Transitional Kindergarten to Grade 8. We are committed to living the Catholic faith and adhere completely to the Church’s Magisterium. Tuition assistance is available for qualified families.

I encourage you to look into what Holy Innocents School offers for your son or daughter.

Father G. Peter Irving III
