A Salute to Veterans!

Wednesday, November 11, 2020 at 9:30am

We will be having a Veteran’s Day mass on Wednesday, Nov. 11 at 9:30am followed by a Tribute to our Veterans presented by the students. All takes place at SES church. If you know a veteran you would like us to pray for, please submit their name, branch of service, rank and dates of service to Mrs. Groch at groch@seseton.org. Thank You for Helping Us Honor Our Beloved Veterans!

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. Thank you for your consideration and support!
