Gratitude from Padre
Thank you to all who have committed to our participation in the Catholic Faith Appeal. As of this time, St. Elizabeth Seton Catholic Church has given a powerful response. Did you know that Catholic Charities is the main charitable arm of the Diocese of Venice? Some of the programs provided by Catholic Charities are counseling; disaster response; financial assistance and food pantries; senior citizens’ services; HIV/AIDS ministries; and special projects such as summer youth camps; and back to school assistance.
Many of us and our diocesan sisters and brothers benefit from these and the many other programs and services provided by the Diocese of Venice through YOUR participation in the CFA. If you have yet to join us, please bring to prayer HOW it is that your talent, time, and treasure can contribute to the mission and ministry of Christ Jesus.
Thanks and peace. Fr. Russell
Continue to Pray
Please continue to pray and show your support to our children, teens, young people, and adults who have been journeying this Lenten season and all year to come into fuller communion in the Roman Catholic Faith Tradition.
We have twelve candidates entering at Easter Vigil; over one hundred children and teens receiving First Communion; and almost twenty teens receiving Confirmation! We are a growing faith community with dedicated catechists and families seeking to grow in their faith. Glory and praise to our God for such a joyful gift of more sisters and brothers seeking the Lord.
