A first class relic of St. Elizabeth Ann Seaton has been gifted to St. Michael Catholic Church from Emily Glover of Cleveland, GA.
Back in the fall of 2019 Deacon Ken Lampert was the bishops MC up at St. Paul Catholic Church in Cleveland for Confirmation there. While serving there, he talked with Emily Glover, a parishioner at St. Paul’s, and asked if she would consider donating one of the saint’s relics in her chapel at home to St. Michael, since our parish did not have a relic for our altar. Emily is a direct descendent of Pope Innocent X, and the relics she has have been passed down through the family.
Just recently while Emily was praying in her chapel, Mother Seton told her she wanted to come to St. Michael.
After Easter we will plan to have a special Mass to honor the relic of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton. For now, Mother Seton’s relic is in our chapel next to the monstrance near our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
