Learning, Connecting Continues
DePaul Cristo Rey High School Seton High School
It is that time of year when we have memories of returning, reconnecting and remembering. It’s the back to school ‘daze.’ Getting back in the routine we soon find the ‘daze’ will connect us with the real joy of learning. We wish students, teachers, parents and staff a very happy new school year!
We Wish You a Happy Birthday
Aug. 28 is Elizabeth Ann Seton’s birthday; she was born in 1774 in New York, New York. In those pioneer days of the Church in America she felt the early stirrings of its promise and believed it had a future. Elizabeth, woman of Faith, aid us in these times of uncertainty. Elizabeth, woman of Love, remove from us any division or indifference. Elizabeth, woman of Hope, share with us your unconquerable optimism in the work we are called to do. May your life speak to us of the courage needed for the days ahead. Amen.
