Faculty

St. Thomas Aquinas School is staffed by the Religious Teachers of St. Lucy Filippini and Catholic lay teachers. Our principal is Sr. Anne Louise Abascal, MPF.

The Pontifical Institute of the Religious Teachers Filippini continues to serve the Church as its members live in a community bound in a spousal covenant of love for God through their oblation in the spirit of poverty, chastity, and obedience.

Since the seventeenth century, the Filippini Sisters have devoted themselves to the Christian education of youth. The Sisters were sent to America in 1910 by Pope Pius X. Since then, the community has continued to grow. Its missionary spirit continues to thrive. Today Filippini Sisters can be found serving on five continents.

St. Thomas Aquinas School is the first school in the western region of the United States founded by the Filippini Sisters.
