Pater Noster History

Discussions were held during 1960 and the Diocese Chancery Office suggested the Brothers of St. Patrick staff a new all Boys high school being completed in Los Angeles.   In September 1960, Brother Hilary was transferred as Superior to the new community.  The school was located in a five story building that had been a hosiery factory.  The Brothers were assigned a few small homes until a large residence capable of accommodating fourteen Brothers was completed in July 1963.  A new facility for 14 brothers and a chapel was blessed by Cardinal McIntyre on April 12, 1963.During 1990, a demographic study was commissioned by the Chancery Office.  This study recommended the closure of Pater Noster.  Enrollment had dropped from 325 students to 192.  The Brothers proposed making the school co-educational, but the Catholic girls schools in the area would suffer too high an enrollment decrease.  The advisory board made the decision to close the school in June 1991.  The Brothers were associated with the school for 31 years.  Brother Phillip Shepler was the last Principal of Pater Noster.
