St. Elizabeth Ann Seton is now looking for sponsors for the many booths, tents, and bandstand. A sponsorship banner is an excellent opportunity to promote your business, service, or support the parish community. We are also seeking donations for the Festival Bid and Buy and basket booth. Bid and Buy is a great way to showcase your handiwork, or to donate gently used household items to the festival.
Please also look over your home libraries for any gently used books you are able to donate to the popular book fair. All categories are needed including: children’s, religious, fiction, non-fiction, historical, mystery, etc. Books may be dropped off at the Seton parish office.
Please contact Julie George with questions or sponsorships or donations.

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.
Pastoral Region Plan Complete
Thanks to the extraordinary work of the Pastoral Region Coordinating Committee in 2014, the Pastoral Region Plan for St. Andrew and St. Elizabeth Ann Seton is now complete. If you would like to read the completed Pastoral Region Plan, Exhibit A - C, Exhibit D - H, click on these three links.
The review of the process that we can all expect over the next two years is on June 30, 2015, Fr. Rob Waller will retire as pastor of St. Andrew. In the spring of 2015, his position will be “open listed.” In situations like this, sometimes a “parochial administrator” is named who would have the same responsibilities as pastor, but for only a two-year term. However, if the right priest candidate surfaces at the right time, there is the possibility of a “pastor” being named to St. Andrew who will automatically become the pastor of the Pastoral Region of St. Andrew and St. Elizabeth Ann Seton in 2017 when it is fully implemented. In June of 2017, Fr. Michael Cordier will complete his term as pastor of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish. Fr. Cordier does not intend to present himself as a candidate for the position of pastor of the Pastoral Region.
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.
