Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton is the secondary patron saint of the Diocese of Arlington. She is also the patron saint of
children near death and persons rejected for their Catholic faith.
You blessed Elizabeth Seton with gifts of grace;
As wife and mother, educator and foundress,
So that she might spend her life in service to your people.
Through her example and prayers
May we learn to express our love for you
In love for our fellow men and women.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
Who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
One God, for ever and ever. Amen.
