Dear Seton Family, You may recall that Archbishop Lori emailed Catholics throughout the Archdiocese this week to share a set of guidelines for Phase I regarding three areas: Wedding and Funeral Masses and the Sacraments; Resumption of Parish Ministries; and Resumption of Parish Operations. A video was also created to help you understand “What to Expect When You Return to Mass.”...

Parish Update - 5/8/2020

Posted on May 08, 2020

Dear Seton Family, We seek Jesus, who is the "way, and the truth, and the life," so that we may come to follow his way, to know his truth, and to experience the fullness of life. That fullness is not just some incrementally better version of our day-to-day lives in this world, but something altogether different, something which we cannot fully comprehend or articulate. HOPE is our ope...

Dear Seton Family, This week I’m giving up my keyboard by posting two messages from Msgr. Jeff Burrill and Fr. Vince Cushing (our weekend Presiders) who write to inform you how they are doing during this pandemic: Hello Parishioners of Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton!  Last Sunday I briefly panicked when a notice popped up on my cell phone reminding me that I had the 8:00 am Mass in 15 ...

Dear Seton Family, “I wonder and I wander out under the sky....”  I think we’re all familiar with that Christmas carol that has its origins in the hills of Appalachia. During these days of the lockdown, I found myself doing a lot of wandering in my daily walks around the neighborhood. And as I wandered, I wondered, mostly about you! Earlier this week, I created a short...

Dear Sisters and Brothers, Christ is Risen!  Indeed, He is risen! During these first eight days (the Octave) of the Easter season, the gospels from daily Mass are stories of Jesus appearing to his disciples after the Resurrection. As the disciples are huddled behind locked doors, the Risen Jesus is suddenly standing there and says, “Peace be with you.” They were scared an...

Dear Sisters and Brothers, Thank you for your messages, texts, emails and Facebook comments regarding our Holy Week liturgies. After receiving guidance from the Archdiocese on what to do for the Triduum services of Holy Thursday, Good Friday, the Easter Vigil and Easter Sunday, I had  to learn “how” to implement these in such a small space due to the live stream camera view.&nb...

Easter Sunday

Posted on April 12, 2020

Dear Sisters and Brothers,   While the Pandemic is still with us, we have arrived at Easter. In the face of present difficulties, we can rejoice that Christ is Risen, Alleluia! Risen, indeed, Alleluia! The joy of the first Easter came from the discovery of the Risen Lord present in his disciples’ lives. He came where they were locked away because of fear and gave them the courag...

Easter Vigil

Posted on April 11, 2020

Dear Seton Family, Tonight is the “Mother of all vigils”, the pinnacle of the Church year, and the highpoint of Christian liturgy. We celebrate this solemn, yet joyful liturgy in the expectation of Christ’s resurrection in Easter. Due to the covid-19 pandemic, there is no lighting and blessing of the new fire, no outdoor procession, no one holding lit tapers in a dark churc...
