March 2019

I find it hard to believe that 50 years have passed since I graduated from Mother Seton School! But, as a member of the Class of 1969, that's true. Recently, several members of our class gathered together to celebrate that milestone. We had a marvelous time, including a tour of the school, a luncheon, a visit with Sr. Patricia Ann Bossle (known as Sr. Mary Aloysius back in our day) and Sr. Joan Keating at St. Joseph House, and a few hours at the Ott House to continue catching up!

(Left to Right) Class of 1969 members: Vida Antolin, Bob Henke, Tom Vaughn, Tim Holden, Kate Marshall, Kevin Gorman, Marty Manning Gorman, seated, Sr. Patricia Ann.

Can you pick us out from the 1969 class photo with Sr. Joan Keating? Hint: Kevin isn't in the picture since he was not in school that day. We've all changed a little bit (and from my personal perspective, thank goodness for contacts!)

Despite the different paths we have all travelled in the last 50 years, one thing we still have in common: our gratitude to Mother Seton School for the education we received there and to our parents for the sacrifices they made to enable us to attend an academically-strong, faith-based school. 

Enjoy the spring time weather and have a blessed and happy Easter!

MSS Alumni Giving Back

We are blessed because our MSS alums give back in so many ways!  Ned Remavege (MSS 1961) and his wife Patricia recently volunteered to be guest readers at MSS's 'Read Across America' on March 1.  Read Across America is a nationwide awareness program that encourages every child in every community to celebrate reading on March 2 (or close to it), the birthday of the children's author Dr. Seuss. I'm not sure who had more fun- Ned and Patricia or the 2nd graders they were reading too!
