St. Elizabeth Ann Seton and the Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati

 
 
    The chapel at Lehman Catholic High School is named in honor of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton.  Foundress of the Sisters of Charity, St. Elizabeth opened the first parochial school in the United States in 1810.  Since that time, the Sisters of Charity have made the education of children a consistent part of their ministry and charism.
 
    The Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati, currently serving in a variety of ministries in 28 dioceses in the United States, have had a shared history with Lehman Catholic High School since its inception.  Prior to the consolidation of Holy Angels High School and Piqua Catholic in 1970, the Sisters of Charity had been working at Holy Angels High School since it was founded in 1889.  That community’s involvement with secondary education in the northern area of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati continues unto this day.
 
    St. Elizabeth not only had a great love for children, but for the Blessed Sacrament as well.  Contemplating the gift of the Holy Eucharist to be received at Mass, St. Elizabeth once advised, “In the course of the day, while you work or pray, sometimes think: “Oh, how happy I am! Jesus, my dear Jesus, is coming to me. Oh, dearest Lord, prepare me for Yourself!”
 
    It is that joy and love of the Lord that remains at the heart of Lehman Catholic High School, as we continue to strive, through both the academic and liturgical life of our school, to educate the whole person - body, mind and soul - for the glory of God and the service of others.
