important informationKindergarten
Since the inception of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish there has been a Kindergarten class for children of the parish, not in Catholic schools.  The Diocese considers Kindergarten a crucial step in preparing for the reception of the Sacraments of Reconciliation and First Holy Communion.  The Diocese of Greensburg wants the children to have two FULL years of preparation for these Sacraments.  Kindergarten is the first year.  If your child is entering Kindergarten in August, please pick up a registration form (on back shelf in Church), fill it out and either mail it to Sister Charlene, OR put it in an envelope labeled CCD REGISTRATION and drop it in the collection basket during Week-end Liturgies.
