“It is not how much we do but how much we love… that makes our offering something beautiful to God”
-Mother Teresa
School Mission Statement

“MT is the place to be!”
School Motto

The doors of Mother Teresa opened in September 2005 to relieve the enrolment pressures experienced at St. Ann and St. Anthony Schools in the West end of St. Catharines.

The Board approved the name of Mother Teresa Catholic Elementary School to honour the memory of Mother Teresa of Calcutta. The Official Blessing and opening ceremony took place on October 6, 2005. His Excellency (Most Rev.) James M. Wingle D.D., Bishop of St. Catharines, officiated.

Our community is focused on helping one another to have a fantastic journey while we are connected to Mother Teresa Catholic. Our community family celebrates, challenges and nurtures our students, staff and one another. We have a strong spiritual and social justice focus as we continue to develop our future leaders. The members of our Catholic School Council are huge supporters of all the various activities and events that the school is involved in at the local and international level. This group of dynamic parents and staff exchange ideas on a regular basis and always seek input from our community.

Mother Teresa Catholic Elementary School is a part of the Saint Francis Catholic Secondary School Family of Schools.
