Feast Day: St. Elizabeth Ann Seton

St. Elizabeth Ann Seton is the first American-born saint canonized by Holy Mother Church.  She is patroness of Catholic education and the patroness of our home-education adventures (with St. Athanasius).  Her national shrine is in Emmitsburg, Maryland where she founded her congregation and schools ... a wonderful place to visit and pray and learn about this widowed mother who did so much in her relatively short life.

St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, pray for us!
