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

Welcome!

Prayer Intentions

YEAR OF SAINT JOSEPH PRAYER:

To you, O blessed Joseph, do we come in our afflictions, and having implored the help of your most holy Spouse, we confidently invoke your patronage also.

Through that charity which bound you to the Immaculate Virgin Mother of God and through the paternal love with which you embraced the Child Jesus, we humbly beg you graciously to regard the inheritance which Jesus Christ has purchased by his Blood, and with your power and strength to aid us in our necessities.

O most watchful guardian of the Holy Family, defend the chosen children of Jesus Christ; O most loving father, ward off from us every contagion of error and corrupting influence; O our most mighty protector, be kind to us and from heaven assist us in our struggle with the power of darkness.

As once you rescued the Child Jesus from deadly peril, so now protect God’s Holy Church from the snares of the enemy and from all adversity; shield, too, each one of us by your constant protection, so that, supported by your example and your aid, we may be able to live piously, to die in holiness, and to obtain eternal happiness in heaven.  Amen.
