Mother Seton School searches for alumni

Mother Seton School, Emmitsburg, is asking for help in locating alumni and memorabilia from all graduating classes, especially the class of 1958 who will celebrate their 50th anniversary in 2008.

The school would like to strengthen the alumni piece of their Web site ( by posting photos and listing personal achievements of graduates.

The class of 1958 will be recognized Jan. 9 with a Mass at the National Shrine of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, Emmitsburg, a luncheon, and a tour. Those 30 graduates have the distinct honor of being among the first to graduate from Mother Seton.

The building has since changed location in the 50 years since those students walked its halls, but the mission is still the same: to continue the legacy of Elizabeth Ann Seton.

Sister JoAnne Goecke, D.C., principal, said, “Mother Seton’s legacy is to create a school for children where they can learn the most valuable and beautiful lesson of their lives – God loves them, cares for them, and desires them to spread that love and care in their own way, using the gifts they have.”

Contact the development office with any alumni information at 301-447-3165 or mail memorabilia to Development Office, 100 Creamery Road, Emmitsburg, Md., 21727.
