Celebrate Mother Seton’s 247th Birthday!

Let’s celebrate all weekend long!

Join us for a weekend filled with activities in our Living History program.  Learn historic games, colonial dance, water coloring, basket weaving, and much more. A passport to history will engage those of all ages!

And our Junior History Interpreters who portray real–life students from Mother Seton’s time will teach about early 19th century school life!  

The Gift Shop is also offering 20% off all Mother Seton products.

On Sunday, join us at the 1:30pm Mass where we will have a special Backpack Blessing for those returning to school.
