Give the Gift of Faith this Christmas

Seton’s El Camino Network

Amidst the shuttering of over sixty Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of New York—the bulk of which were K-8 schools providing a safe haven to children living in poverty—Cardinal Dolan asked Seton Education Partners to find a new way to evangelize children and their families in underserved communities. 

In August 2013, Seton launched El Camino, an extended-day faith and enrichment program in the South Bronx, where nearly every family is Latino or African-American, and over 90 percent of our families live below the poverty line. 

Our call: to create a financially sustainable way to provide rich and engaging faith formation and enrichment for children in underserved communities who cannot afford even the low tuition at most urban Catholic schools.

El Camino, which means “The Way” in Spanish, provides Catholic faith formation, activity classes and sports, character development, and homework help through a fun and enriching extended day program. We want to help our children to better know, love, and serve Christ; to grow in virtue; and to achieve academic success, all while evangelizing whole families. 

This innovative effort is working. See a few of the many ways El Camino makes an impact!

We invite you to become a monthly supporter. When it comes to the formation of souls, even a small gift can have eternal rewards. Thank you for helping prepare boys and girls to become young men and women of faith and integrity.
