SEAS Mission Statement
St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish is an evolving Roman Catholic Community dedicated to meeting the spiritual needs of those in our parish and the surrounding area. We gather in worship where all are welcome around the table of the Eucharist to be nourished by the Word of God, the Sacraments, and one another so that in our lives we may recognize and use our gifts with joyful creativeness. As the body of Christ, we are committed to nourishing the spiritual life and well being of ourselves and one another, especially those in need.
Welcome to St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish!
We have a history of over 25 years of service that continues today and one that we can be proud of. Our faith community has been a source of strength and life for so many people; yet, there is much that challenges us to find new ways to serve the needs of the People of God and the society in which we live. We continually need to commit ourselves to the future and to ways of making our faith alive and growing.
A community can only give what its members make possible. Miracles and wonders can happen because we are a community and not just individuals, and so what we share is a fuller expression of faith and love.
Welcome, again, and may God bless you and St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish.
Rev. William V. Spilly
Message from Bishop Matano
In a video message to the Catholic faithful released last week, Bishop Matano said, "I renew my most sincere apology to anyone who was harmed by a cleric or Church personnel who so terribly violated their position of trust and scarred the very lives of those whom they were called to serve. I pray that the victims and all affected by these egregious acts will find healing and hope. Know that Our Lord never abandons us and is always present, especially in times of grave difficulty and suffering…Our diocesan efforts of many years to heal and to restore victims, and to create a safe environment, will continue. We will remain vigilant."

|Association of U.S. Catholic Priests|
The AUSCP was founded in 2011 by 27 priests and has sprung into the largest association of Catholic priests (almost 1200) in the United States. With supportive lay Friends (150), we stand on the vision and values of the Gospel and Church teaching as exemplified in Vatican II and Pope Francis. We raise a prophetic and inclusive voice of compassion in church and society as Jesus did.
