Seton Catholic schools attend mass together at Marquette University
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- A Catholic celebration took place at Marquette University's Al McGuire Center Tuesday morning.
Students from the ten Milwaukee-area Seton Catholic schools celebrated mass together.
Archbishop Jerome Listecki led the service. The Seton Schools serve 2,500 students, and while the archbishop was up on the altar, students also participated.
"We as teachers and staff and administrators are all about them developing their potential, and that's not going to happen if they're not participating," said Seton Catholic Schools President Brian Couch. "So we have masses regularly during the week at our schools, so it's a common experience for them."
Tuesday's mass honored St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, considered the founder of the American Catholic Elementary School. It was Milwaukee's first Seton Schools mass, but organizers are hoping to make it an annual event.
