In times of crisis we are reminded of the necessity, power and comfort of prayer. Here are some resources which we hope may help you to pray at home. Also, at the bottom of the page is our prayer request form, where you can ask our prayer network to pray for you or those you love.
Outdoor Stations of the Cross
Here at Seton you and your family will continue to have the opportunity to pray the Stations of the Cross in an open air atmosphere where you can encounter our Lord Jesus while maintaining social distancing. Temporary stations have been set up starting in the West parking lot and proceeding into the East parking lot perimeters. The meditation at each of the stations has been edited from the "Stations of the Cross during Coronavirus" by Maribeth Hopps. The stations are available every day from dawn to dusk throughout the health crisis. Please respect all CDC guidelines especially social distancing.

Daily Devotions and Meditations
Here are a few devotional site we really like:
Cope: Taking care of your Mental Health
Pause, Take a deep breath, and appreciate
As easy as it may be, take the time to count your blessings and enjoy the simple yet beautiful wonders that God has given you. The breeze, the sunlight, the plants that continue to grow, the beauty in a sunrise or sunset. Take this time to see your world with child-like wonder.
The Examen is a traditional method of prayerful awareness. It’s a short, easy way to reflect on your day and become more mindful about where you are experiencing grace or goodness and where there is room in your actions and life for growth. Especially in times of uncertainty and rapid change, taking time to reflect becomes essential. Click here to learn more
