Week of September 14, 2020

Following our first school mass of the year celebrated by Father Casey at St. Elizabeth Seton Church, the Seton community hosted a 9/11 Tribute on Friday (led by students in grades 5-8) honoring and remembering those who lost their lives in the tragic events of 9-11-2001. We paid tribute to local police, firefighters, and first responders for all their hard work and dedication in keeping us safe.

Representing each of the locations where lives were lost, students brought forth 6 scrolls with printed names all 9-11 victims, roses and flags laying them beside a beautiful red, white, blue wreath (graciously donated by Gene’s Fifth Avenue Florist). We also dedicated an inscribed brick to be placed at the Freedom Memorial. Many thanks to Naples Mayor Teresa Heitmann, Collier County Sheriff Kevin Rambosk, Jerry Sanford, Pres. of the Collier County Freedom Memorial, as well as several local police and firefighters for joining us. The Seton community will never forget…#SetonStrong!
