Gratitude for All
Dear Fr. Bob and the people of St. Agnes Catholic Church,
On behalf of the entire parish of St. Elizabeth Seton Catholic Church, we greatly appreciate your Christ-like care, concern, and generosity towards us as both the parish and school have worked through Hurricane Irma’s damage. Also, you always will remain in our prayers as we keep a special place in our hearts for St. Agnes’ parishioners. Please be assured that we are here for you all as well.
From your donations to the parish and school to the gift of the folding chairs, you all have demonstrated the power of Christ Crucified and Risen, having been thrown into chaos and darkness and now finding peace and light. St. Agnes parish is Spirit-filled, and we are blessed to have you as our sisters and brothers in Christ Jesus and our neighbors.
All of us at St. Elizabeth Seton Catholic Church hope and pray that all of you have a blessed and holy Easter season. May the power of Christ Risen- the unconditional love and grace of God- be yours now and always. Peace.
Sincerely yours in Christ’s service,
The people of St. Elizabeth Seton and Fr. Russell Ruggiero
It is with great joy that we announce that our first annual Sts. Joseph and Patrick Dinner/Dance was a success in communion and fellowship. We want to thank the Knights of Columbus, our parish and school volunteers, the staff at the Vineyards Country Club, Carl Granieri, his orchestra, and our SES choir, and all the attendees for creating a phenomenal and Christ-like event. We are extremely blessed at St. Elizabeth Seton Catholic Church.We will publish the event’s financial report as soon as available.
