Sacramental Life

And it happened that, while he was with them at table, he took bread, said the blessing, broke it, and gave it to them. With that their eyes were opened and they recognized him.
—Luke 24:30-31

The Sacraments are a key aspect of our Catholic faith and the spiritual life on campus. They are indispensable founts of grace for the salvation of souls. 

Mass

Daily Mass

Students are provided the opportunity to attend daily Mass in the Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton Chapel, Monday through Friday during the school year. Students are encouraged to attend Mass individually, with friends, or with their clubs and athletic teams.

All-School Mass

Eight times a school year, the entire Seton community gathers for our all-school liturgy in the Msgr. John McMahon Gym. Students participate in all aspects of the liturgy as altar servers, lectors, Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion, ushers, in preparing art & environment for the Mass, and music ministry.
