St. Elizabeth Seton has partnered with the Gulfshore Players and the Holocaust Museum to bring a special play to our campus. It is based on a true story of a local Holocaust survivor entitled “In Flight-the Story of Sabine Van Dam”. Students in grades 7 and 8 will participate in a special pre-theatre workshop on kindness and social justice and those students will attend the play. Parents of all students are welcome to attend as well. Following the play, students in grades 6-8 will participate in an ongoing program about spreading Kindness and making a difference at school, at home, and in the world.

Box of Joy (A ministry of Cross Catholic Outreach)
At Christmas we experience the joy of our Lord Jesus Christ and gift giving is a wonderful part of that experience. But severe poverty in developing countries deprives children of this joy. Parents are simply too poor to provide gifts. The Box of Joy ministry will allow the Seton parish and school community to send joy to the world!
Prayerfully consider if you’d like to participate in this service project and if your family would like to fill more than one Box of Joy. Thank you in advance for participating in this simple yet tangible service experience that has both a material and spiritual impact on the poorest of the poor in developing countries. For more information on Box of Joy, visit https://crosscatholic.org/boxofjoy/
