 St. Elizabeth Ann Seton accomplished extraordinary things during her life. However, she didn’t accomplish any of them in a single day. Rather, it was the accumulation of a lifetime of ordinary days lived well which shaped her impact on the world. Her spirit of faith, service and leadership, in the ordinary moments made a large impact.

Describe an ordinary day in your life in which the Spirit of Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton positively impacted you
or in which positively impacted someone else.
