We Share Service Project for November - House of Peace Holiday Meal Boxes

Are you able to help feed the hungry this Thanksgiving?

The people of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton are holding a food drive November 1 - 15 benefitting the House of Peace for its annual Thanksgiving collection.

El Salvador Solidarity

El Salvador is in need of assistance due to the COVID virus, economic/political strife and now, they are recovering from devastating Tropical Storms which have displaced thousands of families.  PLEASE visit the El Salvador Solidarity Ministry page on the Seton website.  When you visit our webpage, you will be directed to the SHARE letter/form asking for donations for food baskets and Seeds of Hope for crops.

Our Salvadoran friends need our help! Gracias! 


Migrant Ministry

In our migrant community, just like others, many have lost their jobs. However, unlike most of us, many migrants and their families will not be receiving a stimulus check, even though many pay into our income tax system. The Migrant Ministry is supporting the Migrant MKE Food Drive to help these families not go hungry. We are collecting non-perishable food items such as flour, oil, beans, rice, cereal and canned goods. These can be either dropped off at 13320 W North Lane, New Berlin, or if you need it picked up, please contact Joanna Boey at 262-853-4033 or Send us a message

Homemade Masks

Make homemade masks to donate to local healthcare systems fighting COVID-19. Archbishop Listecki invites all who have the gift of sewing and crafting to make homemade face masks for our local health care systems.  Visit the Archdiocese page here to find the closest health care system to your home and see how you can help. We are all in this together.


 

Join our Prayer Network

The Prayer Network Ministry supports parishioners, their families and friends with prayer during times of special need. The ministers are a group of people who have offered to pray for others. Prayer requests are made on our prayer request page. A prayer request list is then e-mailed once a week to the prayer ministers.

If you would like to pray for others by becoming a prayer network minister, contact: Jean Klawitter, 414-425-3393, or send us a message
