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!

Please view the guidelines from the Catholic Diocese of Richmond “Preparation of a Return to Mass” here.  Thank you and God Bless!

Prayer Intentions

PRAYERS TO SAINT JOSEPH PROPOSED BY THE HOLY FATHER:

Hail, Guardian of the Redeemer, Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary.  To you God entrusted his only Son; in you Mary placed her trust; with you Christ became man.

Blessed Joseph, to us too, show yourself a father and guide us in the path of life.  Obtain for us grace, mercy and courage, and defend us from every evil.  Amen.

***

Glorious Patriarch Saint Joseph, whose power makes the impossible possible, come to my aid in these times of anguish and difficulty. Take under your protection the serious and troubling situations that I commend to you, that they may have a happy outcome. My beloved father, all my trust is in you. Let it not be said that I invoked you in vain, and since you can do everything with Jesus and Mary, show me that your goodness is as great as your power.  Amen.
