Seton Hill Honors Founders, Embraces the Future on Inaugural Founders' Day

Seton Hill's inaugural Founders’ Day brought the campus community together to celebrate the Sisters of Charity of Seton Hill, who, under the leadership of Mother Aloysia Lowe, came to Greensburg in 1882 to establish a new community, new ministries and new schools that would eventually lead to the founding of a four-year college for women in 1918.

This year's theme, "Honoring our Founders, Embracing our Future," spoke to the need for us to remember our history but also look forward. 

The day's events featured presentations by students and faculty, the Eucharistic Celebration for the Solemnity of St. Joseph in St. Joseph Chapel, an Interfaith Panel Discussion, and more. Founders' Day concluded with a public lecture by Cardinal Robert W. McElroy, Bishop of the Diocese of San Diego, in the Seton Hill University Performing Arts Center.
