We are so glad you are here and thank you for your interest in the ministries of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton. We are looking forward with great expectation to all that God will do through the many ministries listed here.
It is our hope that you will listen to God’s lead and sense God’s direction for your life as you browse through the list. You may be looking for a place to use your gifts in service or a place to grow through the various study and service opportunities. We have many fellowship events planned that will encourage new friendships and make way for a whole lot of fun.
Please don’t hesitate to contact anyone of our staff members or ministry leaders with questions about these opportunities.
Blessings and Shalom,
Father Joe Aufdermauer
