Mother Dolorosa Society

Mother Dolorosa was one of the three founding Dominican Sisters of Mission San Jose who started Flintridge Sacred Heart in 1931. In her years on the Hill, she had a lasting effect on many boarding students who were in her care. They remember her fondly decades after their time as students.

Mother Dolorosa
Due to her leadership and the lasting regard in which she is held, we are delighted to name our legacy society after her. Like Mother Dolorosa, the society members are people whose heart for our mission will impact hundreds of young women in the years ahead.

These generous alumnae, friends and parents who have chosen to remember Flintridge Sacred Heart in their estate plans are a special group. The Mother Dolorosa Society is our way of honoring these philanthropic and dedicated individuals who are creating a legacy here at Flintridge Sacred Heart through planned gifts that are significant and meaningful to them.

We invite you to join the Mother Dolorosa Society. Planned gifts provide the resources that create extraordinary opportunities for young women and preserve Flintridge Sacred Heart's future.
