History

Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic School was formerly Our Lady of the Rosary Learning Center. The construction of this center was made possible through a grant from the John G. and Maria Stella Kenedy Memorial Fund.

Its mission was to take care of children so that their mothers could work. It was blessed and dedicated by the Most Reverend Bishop Rene H. Gracida on June 7, 1991. The school is located adjacent to the grounds of St. Paul the Apostle Church. It is administered and operated by the Religious Missionaries of St. Dominic, commonly known as Dominican Sisters.

During the dedication, Bishop Gracida said the center will be a "source of joy, security, and learning for countless young in the decades to come." He continued to say that this new ministry to the young and their families will be a significant contribution to St. Paul's and the surrounding community as a whole.

As an educational ministry of the Religious Missionaries of St. Dominic in the parish of St. Paul the Apostle in the Diocese of Corpus Christi, Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic School serves to impart and promote Catholic faith to the future generations.

In his dedicatory remarks, Bishop Gracida said that the center should not be merely a "depository for children, but rather a place where the children as well as the teachers could grow in grace, wisdom, and love of the Lord." Inspired by this remark, the Sisters of Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic School endeavored to make this school a place of imparting the Gospel message, building community, providing prayer and worship, and creating faith-filled classrooms where students are not just classmates but a family.

At this juncture Our Lady of the Rosary Learning Center was renamed Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic School which became the 19th Catholic School in the Diocese of Corpus Christi and is the Diocese's 15th elementary campus. The proclamation took place on March 12, 2009 in Flour Bluff, Corpus Christi, Texas.

Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic School is a joyful learning environment for the children. The sisters strive for a continuous growth in faith and expression in our Catholic identity. The sisters emphasized that Jesus loves the little children and He wants us to love one another. We make children understand and make choices that will strengthen the roots of their faith as little children.
