Patron Saint of Homeschoolers
Elizabeth Ann Seton is who I pray to for blessings on my home based school. Her feast day is January 4th.
You can download a colouring page here and introduce her to your children.
Besides opening schools, she is also a mother to many littles. She took in her husband’s 6 siblings after the death of her father-in-law and her and her husband had 5 children of their own.
She converted to Catholicism after her husband’s death and went on to open many schools and to care for the poor. She is the first native born American to be canonized a saint.
Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton, pray for us.
