St. Elizabeth Ann Seton has a number of ministries that serve our family parishioners and those in need outside of the parish. We encourage all parishioners to prayerfully select a ministry in which to participate.
Dwayne Grassie 963-7034 email: firstname.lastname@example.org Eucharistic adoration is held on the first Friday each month beginning after the 12:10 pm Mass until Benedicton at 6:00 pm. We must have three people committed for every hour. Please call Dwayne Grassie if you are able to participate in this devotion. All parishioners are welcome to first Friday adoration at any time and for any length of time, though it is recommended that an hour of quiet prayer, meditation and devotion be spent with The Eucharist. For as Jesus said: “So you could not keep watch with me for one hour? Watch and pray that you may not undergo the test. The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak.” – Matthew 26:40-41
