Celebrate Mother Seton’s Birthday!

August 30 @ 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Join us Sunday, August 30th for our first event in months! We will be celebrating Mother Seton’s 246th birthday all afternoon long, beginning with Mass at 1:30pm where we will have a special Backpack Blessing for those returning to school. Immediately following, the celebration moves outdoors where historic games, colonial dance, and a passport to history will engage those of all ages.  

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

We all need a reason to celebrate, and what better reason than the birthday of a saint!
