Sacramental Life | Seton Catholic Preparatory

Sacramental Life

And it happened that, while he was with them at table, he took bread, said the blessing, broke it, and gave it to them. With that their eyes were opened and they recognized him
—Luke 24:30-31

The Sacraments are a key aspect of our Catholic faith and the spiritual life on campus. They are indispensable founts of grace for the salvation of souls.
