Volunteers decorate the church for weekend and Holy Day liturgies, sacramental liturgies, and special feasts such as Easter, Christmas, and the parish anniversary.
Archdiocese of Baltimore
The Archbishop’s Annual Appeal begins in January. Formerly the Archbishop’s Lenten Appeal, it was founded in 1992 to provide critical funding for over 300 parishes, schools, agencies, organizations, and ministries in the Archdiocese of Baltimore and around the world.
This year’s theme is "A Light Brightly Visible". Our contributions to our parish and our Archdiocese serve as a sign of our gratitude not only for God's answers to our prayers but also as a sign of our recognition that all that we are and all that we have are gifts given to us by God. Through your generosity, education, outreach, mission, and ministry we touch the lives of thousands of individuals and families as we continue to share Christ’s love each day.
Our parish receives 25% of each dollar contributed up to our goal of $98,600. Then, we receive 50% of the additional funds received. For more information on the 2016 Archbishop’s Annual Appeal or to pledge online, please visit www.archbalt.org/appeal. Thank you for your prayers and support as we all help further Archbishop Lori’s mission.
In 2015, as a parish, St. Elizabeth Ann Seton met its goal and increased its giving from the prior year. In 2016, please answer the Archbishop's request and make a generous pledge so that we once again exceed our goal. All pledges can be billed in ten monthly installments. We thank all who contribute either for the first time or in an increased capacity.
At this time we do not have a Capital Campaign in progress. However, we are continuing to encourage parishioners to contribute to the Budget Reduction Fund. Our last construction project which involved opening up the narthex of the church, considerable restorative work in the church interior, and the two-story addition to the parish center, still carries a mortgage of about $300,000. We expect the mortgage to be paid off by November, 2016.
Welcome to St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish. We pray that you will find this web site useful in learning about the parish and all of the opportunities that exist here for you and your family.
We try very hard to ensure that there are no strangers among us, but as we continue to grow, that becomes more challenging. It is up to each member of the community, whether old or new, to reach out and welcome everyone. If you are new to the parish, I ask you to introduce yourself to me so that I can get to know you as more than just a face in the crowd.
If any staff member or I can be of assistance to you, please call us. Again, welcome to Seton Parish. We hope you have found a home.
