Looking After Schools

Who Supports the Needs of Children & Parental Rights?

by Joe Manzari

Every January 4 the Catholic Church in the United States celebrates the life and work of Elizabeth Ann Seton (1774–1821), the patron saint of Catholic schools.

Having a great concern for children who had a need for religious instruction but lacked educational opportunities, she started the first free Catholic school in America.
