Catholic High School Students Take Great Strides for Sister School in Haiti

Seton School in Manassas, Va., is running so as to win the imperishable crown to paraphrase St. Paul’s letter to the Corinthians. 

The Arlington Catholic Herald recently reported that Seton hosted a walk/run at Signal Hill Park in Manassas to raise money for its sister school, St. Thomas School in Thomassique, Haiti.

The partnership between the schools was formed thirteen years ago and St. Thomas relies on the support.  Seton has sent library books, school supplies, and playground equipment to St. Thomas in the past, and now provides for the 800 students at the school to receive a meal every day, according to the Herald.

Seton School was recognized in 2012 as one of Top 50 Catholic High Schools in the United States by the Catholic High School Honor Roll, a program of The Cardinal Newman Society

Director of programs at The Cardinal Newman Society, Bob Laird, who oversees the organization’s Honor Roll, commends Seton’s commitment to the virtue of charity.

He stated:

Seton School has a long history of carrying for the less fortunate, not only locally, but internationally, as evident by their support of their sister school in Haiti.  Excellent Catholic schools have students who understand that the Corporal Works of Mercy are not something only memorized in elementary school, but also lived out in their daily actions.

The run was successful in raising money for St. Thomas, and also provided an opportunity for fun and fellowship for the school community. Director and founder of Seton, Anne Carroll, participated in the walk.  According to the Herald, she said:

I really enjoyed the beautiful weather and fall foliage, saying three rosaries, waving to people as they passed (and) seeing the little siblings enjoying the day.
