St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Prayers for Teachers and Students

Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton was a Catholic convert and seen by many as the foundress of Catholic parochial schools in the United States. Her primary inspiration and attraction to the Catholic Church was the Blessed Sacrament. In honor of her feast day on January 4, consider sharing these prayers with your students and fellow teachers:
