Alma Mater:

 

The Teurlings Catholic Alma Mater was written by 1971 TCH graduate Constance Koury. The melody for the Alma Mater is based on the song, "Turn Around Look at Me."

 

You have given a path we can follow
Loving all, loving God.
You have guided our goals and our morals
Needing one, needing all.
Teurlings' spirit will live forever
It's love will bring us life.
We needed something to love and guide us
Bring us faith, bring us joy.

You are that something to love and guide us
Something safe, something sure.
You are always right behind us
Teurlings drive, Rebel fight.
Oh, our memories will live forever
And our gains will all shine through.
You are that something to always guide us
Turn around! You'll be there!

  • The Gavel symbolizes law and order and divides the shield into quadrants.

  • The Wing Foot represents athletics and skill.

  • The Cross with Crown symbolizes religion surrounded by branches of remembrance.

  • The Mantling is ornamental and decorative to the crest and carries the colors of the school.

  • The Scroll on the ribbon carries the name Teurlings Catholic and the year it was established.
