Ordering Weekly ~ Scrip Gift Cards
We will order Scrip gift cards weekly for the holidays. So, whether you are or not – consider letting St. Elizabeth Ann Seton help you with all your holiday (and non-holiday) needs!!! Buy Scrip cards from our parish to give as gifts, purchase gifts, buy gas, pay for prescriptions, take your special someone out to dinner, grab fast food while on the go and much more! Whether you use Scrip cards regularly or infrequently, your usage can quickly add up to a sizeable profit for our parish. And remember, buying Scrip cards from St. Elizabeth Ann Seton costs you nothing more than the value on the card. You will find an order form at the Scrip table each week in the parish office. Let us help you help us!
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.
