CATHOLIC SCHOOLS WEEK ~ JANUARY 25th - 31st
Visit our school website and learn more about our school. Catholic schools are needed more than ever, to teach our children about faith, hope and love, to encounter the risen Lord Jesus Christ every day in their classrooms, to learn that they are loved by God, and to leann how to love God and thier neighbor in return. Catholic school education is an investment, the most important you can make - because you will form your child's mind, body and soul, which will last for eternity.
The week concludes with all invited to attend the Spaghetti Dinner - for more information and reservations, visit the homepage of the school website.

VIRTUS Class being offered February 2, 2015
Volunteers of the parish and/or the school working with children are required by the Archdiocese to attend a child protection/safe environment class and have a background check done. A class is scheduled at Seton on Monday, February 2nd, beginning at 4:30pm in the Faculty Room of the school. Please register online at virtusonline.org. The background check can be initiated from this website as well. Archdiocesan policy is that you must be pre-registered in order to attend.
Past Participants of Christ Renews His Parish
All Seton/St. Andrew parishioners who have attended a Christ Renews His Parish weekend are invited to attend a gathering at 7:30pm in the basement of St. Andrew’s Church. The men’s gathering will be held on Monday, February 16th, and the women will meet on Tuesday, February 17th. This will be a time of reflection, prayer and fellowship. What a great way to begin the Holy Season of Lent.
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.
