Dear Friends,

Welcome to our 2019 Gala in the Garden event! Thank you for your generous
support of Mother Seton School. Tonight celebrates the beauty of a
community working together to support the mission of Catholic education.
Forming a Christ centered community is an important part of our mission
and having the opportunity to gather with friends and families involved at
Mother Seton school is truly a blessing.

Our purpose this evening is to come together, have a good time and raise
funds for our children as they strive for academic excellence. Our ability to
offer students a multi-faceted program with strong academics, enhanced
technology, and a range of enrichment activities depends on the generous
support of benefactors. Your presence this evening is an opportunity to
ensure the legacy of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton through the mission of our

All of the proceeds from this event will provide for educational materials
and technology for our students. Just as a garden offers many gifts in the
sights and scents of nature, your support is a gift which offers our students
many opportunities. For all that you share, I am truly grateful!

Sister Brenda Monahan, DC
