Bishop Rhoades Praises Commitment to Catholic Education at Local School

teacherSt. Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish of Fort Wayne, Ind., recently completed construction on a new educational wing for the opening of the St. Elizabeth Ann Seton School, according to Today’s Catholic News. Bishop Kevin Rhoades of the Fort Wayne-South Bend Diocese visited the parish on Saturday, Aug. 16, to celebrate Mass and bless the new wing.

The new St. Elizabeth Ann Seton educational wing will allow 254 students in Fort Wayne to receive a Catholic education, which had not previously been readily available to these students. Bishop Rhoades told the parish that the educational wing “is a sign of your faith and your commitment to the children of this parish and their formation in the faith.” He praised the parish for its devotion to evangelization through Catholic education:

That’s why you built the new addition for Catholic education. You are heeding Pope Francis’ call to the Church to not be self-centered or self-referential, but to be missionary disciples. St. Elizabeth Ann Seton was a great missionary disciple.

“I encourage you to continue to grow as a parish community of faith, hope and love, learning from your patron saint and also asking for her intercession,” Bishop Rhoades stated in his closing address to the parishioners.
