Regular weekend Mass attendance is a primary qualification criterion for active parishioner status at Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton School. Active parishioners are eligible to receive the active parishioner discount for Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton School tuition. Consistent low Mass attendance my lead to the loss of the active parishioner tuition rate benefit.
In order to receive parish sponsorship for the school year the following conditions must be met:
At least one Catholic parent or guardian is registered at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church. Parish sponsorship will not be approved for families with dual membership with other churches for the purpose of receiving parish subsidy at Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton School.
Family must attend Mass on Saturday evening or Sunday each week as well as other Holy Days of Obligation.
A minimum of 15 envelopes must be placed in the collection basket during a Saturday Evening/Sunday Mass during the current calendar year (i.e., period ends Dec. 31). Multiple envelopes received on the same date will only count as one for Mass attendance purposes. Please Note: A financial donation is not necessary to submit an envelope in the collection basket. In addition, if you are using on-line giving, a minimum of 15 envelopes are still required. Extra envelopes are available in the Gathering Area. Please make sure you are staying current on school communications regarding any changes to this policy.
When a parent/guardian who is an active parishioner of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Church enrolls a new student at Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton School part of the application process will be to complete and submit a Parish Sponsorship Application. A parent/guardian will be asked to commitment to the conditions listed above. Sponsorship is then reviewed annually in January based on the prior calendar year’s mass attendance.
