Our Mission Statement
We strive to promote and preserve the history of St Ann's, Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic

To honor those that nurtured our minds and souls:  the Daughters of Charity of St. Vincent de
Paul, the Carmelite priests, and to provide scholarships to educate our youth
.
What we do - Award Scholarships and Exhibit a Photo Gallery at the State Fair of Texas
St. Ann's Alumni & Friends of Little Mexico, Inc. in keeping with its mission to support the scholastic endeavors of
young people who are descendants of alumni from St. Ann School or descendants of past residents of the historic
Dallas community of "Little Mexico", will award Educational Scholarships to aspiring students who desire to continue
their collegiate studies.

For the past 19 years, the St..Ann's Alumni & Friends of Little Mexico, Inc.™ organization worked together on the oral
and pictorial history of Little Mexico in Dallas at the State Fair of Texas, sponsored by
Mundo Latino.   The collection
is comprised of over 1300 photos consisting of Our Lady of Guadalupe church, St. Ann's parochial school events,
along with many pictures of the Little Mexico neighborhood, now extinct,and its residents.
