Altar Servers needed!

As an Altar Server, your son or daughter gives a unique witness of service to the entire St. Elizabeth Seton community and plays a key role in the success and prayerfulness of every Mass. Students earn volunteer hours while being part of this important ministry. Trainings for altar servers will be announced in advance. Contact the church Faith Formation office at (239) 455-3900, or email Hector Salazar at HSalazar@stelizabethseton.org or Claudia Herrera at cherrera@stelizabethseton.org for more information.
