Mater Amabilis (MAH-tare Ah-MAH-bee-lease) translated from Latin means Mother Most Lovable and is a title of Our Lady in the Litany of Loreto (Mother Most Amiable). Mary, under the title of Mater Amabilis, is our patron and our model. The inspiration for the name comes from the Catholic parish of the same name in Ambleside, England where Charlotte Mason lived and worked.

The Mater Amabilis curriculum is placed under the patronage of The Blessed Virgin Mary under the title Mater Amabilis and Blessed John Cardinal Newman.

We are 100% faithful to the Magisterium of the Catholic Church, the Holy Father Pope Francis and the Bishops in communion with him.
