Dear Friends in Christ:

Welcome to the Website of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish.

Seton parish is a vibrant faith community of over 1500 registered families.  Established in 1976, the parish is named after the first native born American citizen to be canonized a saint.  Although a native of New York City, St. Elizabeth Ann left her mark on the Archdiocese of Baltimore.  She opened the first Catholic school in Baltimore and established the Daughters of Charity in Emmitsburg, Maryland.  We are proud to have here as a patron saint.

This website is a “virtual door” into Seton Parish.  Here you will find timely information about our worship life, our programs of charitable service and opportunities for growth in God’s Holy Word.  

If you are visiting the Crofton area, we hope you will join us for weekday or Sunday Mass. If you are looking for a parish to call “home,” please pay us a visit and learn more about us from a member of the pastoral staff or one of our many dedicated parishioners.    

I hope you find your visit to this website helpful.  Know that you are always welcome at Seton Parish.  

Rev. Richard Woy
