They live out the charism of Charity by praying for the mission, being active in ministry, especially toward the poor, and sharing in Congregational celebrations, liturgies, and retreats. checkJohn Uriarte, Religious Studies Chairperson at Mother Seton and fellow Seton Associate, gave the homily at this Mass. pop over hereSister Jacquelyn Balasia, Principal, sponsored these wonderfully talented women: “They will each add so much to this program and in turn will benefit so much from this program bringing this richness back to the MSR school community.” All three are also alumnae of MSR, along with Sr. Jacquelyn.
