Seton Hill Students and Faculty Gather to Learn more about Elizabeth Ann Seton
The Celebrating Task Force for Seton Hill University’s Mission Effectiveness Committee hosted the tenth annual “Lunch with Liz” on February 18, 2010. The event gave students and faculty a chance to have lunch together and learn more about Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton, the founder of the Sisters of Charity. The guest speaker, Sister Mary Clark, S.C., presented a dramatic monologue entitled “Elizabeth Seton: Prayers of the Heart.”
Beginning as early as her childhood, Elizabeth Ann Seton faced many hardships and losses but her faith in God kept her strong through every trial.
“If it weren’t for my trust in God I don’t how I would have gone on,” said Sister Mary, as she portrayed Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton. “Be thankful always and remember God’s plan for your life.”
Following Sister Mary’s monologue, Cindy Boland, director of Campus Ministry, gave the audience members a chance to discuss their opinion of the monologue. Everyone agreed that the program was very informative and provided insight into the character of Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton.
At the conclusion of the event, students who were awarded Sisters of Charity scholarships were recognized.
“Educating equally and together, boys and girls, rich and poor was always a dream of mine…a dream I was glad to achieve,” said Sister Mary, as Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton.
