Welcome to Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church!

On behalf of the faith community of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish, we wish to welcome you!  Be assured of our desire to be of service to you and your family.  Our parish is known as an inviting place to worship and continue ones formation in faith through our many religious and social activities and through service to the community.

On the mission of the Church…  “The parish is the presence of the Church in a given territory, an environment for hearing God’s word, for growth in the Christian life, for dialogue, proclamation, charitable outreach, worship and celebration.  In all its activities the parish encourages and trains its members to be evangelisers.  It is a community of communities, a sanctuary where the thirsty come to drink in the midst of their journey, and a centre of constant missionary outreach… to make them environments of living communion and participation, and to make them completely mission-oriented.”  From Pope Francis’ Evangelii Gaudium

Blessing of Palms in anticipation of Palm Sunday.  Blessed Palms can be picked up on Thursday and Friday, April 2-3, during office hours.

Prayer Intentions

Prayer of Pope Francis to Our Lady, Health of the Sick, to implore her protection during the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic:

O Mary, you shine continuously on our journey as a sign of salvation and hope.

We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick.  At the foot of the Cross you participated in Jesus’ pain, with steadfast faith.

You, Salvation of the Roman People, know what we need.  We are certain that you will provide, so that, as you did at Cana of Galilee, joy and feasting might return after this moment of trial.

Help us, Mother of Divine Love, to conform ourselves to the Father’s will and to do what Jesus tells us:  He who took our sufferings upon Himself, and bore our sorrows to bring us, through the Cross, to the joy of the Resurrection.  Amen.

We seek refuge under your protection, O Holy Mother of God.

Do not despise our pleas – we who are put to the test – and deliver us from every danger, O glorious and blessed Virgin.
