Local Businesses Show Support to Catholic Schools

Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton, the Patron Saint of Catholic Schools, whose feast day is today, January 4, is the first American born saint to be canonized by the Church. She founded the first American religious community for women, the Sisters of Charity. She opened the first American parish school and established the first American Catholic orphanage. All this she did in the span of 46 years while raising her five children.

This is why Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton is the saint whose name we attach to the Annual Scholarship Dinner. 

Due to the pandemic the 11th Annual Seton Scholarship Dinner has been postponed until November 7, 2021. However, the need for tuition assistance is greater than ever. 

Toward that end, a virtual Support Our Catholic Schools ad book was created. Given the fact that 100% of the profit of the Seton Dinner is used each Spring to provide tuition assistance to our Catholic school students, we are thankful to the many friends who stepped up to continue their support of our schools.

This online book has helped to offset the loss of revenue from our canceled 2020 dinner.

support those who support us!

We look forward to seeing you at the 2021 Dinner in the Fall.

The recognition of the second miracle attributed to Acutis’ intercession makes it possible that Acutis could be canonized during the Catholic Church’s 2025 Jubilee Year.

Eucharistic Pilgrimage Brings Christ to the World
During Pentecost weekend I participated in an historic event in New Haven, Connecticut. I was not there to take part in another protest at Yale University, or even to attend any of the graduation ceremonies taking place there. Instead, I joined hundreds of other Catholics for the launch of the National Eucharistic Pilgrimage. This four-pronged pilgrimage, which began simultaneously in New Haven, San Francisco, Brownsville, Texas and the Mississippi Headwaters in northern Minnesota, will cover 6,500 miles over the next two months. These four routes will converge in Ind...

The Giver of Rosary Beads
'Diakonia - Instruments of God's Charity' As children of God, I’ve often wondered if Jesus has a special name or nickname for each of us. There was Peter “The Rock,” “Doubting Thomas” and John the “Beloved Disciple.” If Jesus has a special name for me, perhaps it would be “The Giver of Rosary Beads.” As each of us live out our faith journeys, we are shaped by events and our relationship with God can take on new directions. At the end of 1990, with increasing family and work stress, the new direction for...
