Eucharistic Healing Services ~ February 26th and March 13th
Join fellow parishioners as we experience the healing power of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist. We will have a Eucharistic Healing Service on Tuesday, February 26th at St. Andrew at 7:30 p.m; and another Eucharistic Healing Service on Wednesday, March 13th, at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton at 7:30 p.m. We see many examlples of Jesus healing people in the Gospels; it is the same Jesus in the Eucharist who wants to come to you with His power to heal and His power to save.

Are you interested in learning more about the Catholic Faith?
We welcome all who would be interested in learning more about the Catholic Faith, and maybe even becoming Catholic. The Catholic Church traces its beginnings to Jesus Christ. Our Lord gave us the Church, and through the Church, we have been given the Magisterium, the Sacraments, and the Bible, and so much more, all guided by the Holy Spirit. If you have any questions or would like to
make an appointment to talk, call Patty Norris at 575 - 0119 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also call Fr. Michael Cordier at 575-0119. May the Spirit help you ask a question and begin the most exciting journey of a lifetime.

A Novena for St. Andrew / St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish School
O Good and Gracious God,
We praise and thank you for the students in our parish school. It is a sacred privilege to continue the teaching mission of your son, Jesus. We hear his words in our hearts: “Let the children come to me! Do not hinder them.” Please listen to our prayers as we ask you, Lord, to remove whatever hinders parents from choosing our Catholic school for their children. Guide their thinking and their decisions. May parents see the great benefits of a Catholic education that can last a lifetime. Bless our efforts. Help us be a school for all. Lord we hold in prayer all the students you will send to our school. Thank you Lord for blessing us with a future filled with promise and hope. We ask this through the intercession of Mary our Blessed Mother, St. Andrew and St. Elizabeth Ann Seton. Amen.
Prayer by St. Elizabeth Ann Seton
Lord Jesus, Who was born for us in a stable, lived for us a life of pain and sorrow, and died for us upon a cross; say for us in the hour of death, Father, forgive, and to Your Mother, Behold your child. Say to us: “This day you shall be with Me in paradise.” Dear Savior, leave us not, forsake us not. We thirst for You, Fountain of Living Water. Our days pass quickly along, soon all will be consummated for us. To Your hands we commend our spirits, now and forever. Amen.
