Blessing of the Animals
On Saturday, October 8, a number of St. Elizabeth Seton parishioners, along with their pets, gathered in the church courtyard for the Blessing of the Animals annual ceremony. This beautiful tradition honors St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals and the environment, and celebrates the special bond between people and their beloved companion animals. Father Kilian McCaffrey, St. Elizabeth Seton’s parish Pastor, officiated at the ceremony and was assisted by Steve Raml, Liturgy and Music Director. Four-legged friends included all different breeds and sizes of dogs who outnumbered the four lovely felines taking part in the event. “I wanted my dog blessed because he has been such a blessing in my life,” a parishioner shared, a sentiment the human attendees all seemed to have in common.
Women’s Seton Society Holds Annual Bazaar
On October 29th, as the fall weather arrives and with the thought of the holiday’s ahead, it was the perfect time for the Annual Seton Society Bazaar. Thanks to the donations of our parishioners, many quality items such as those for the household, various plants, and even a choice selection of Santa’s were there for the smart consumer. Also, an array of baked goods tempted many not to worry about the calories but rather to indulge themselves with delights. Hot food was also available for those who built-up an appetite while shopping. The Bazaar ran for two days October 29th-30th with all proceeds going to the parish. We thank the women who participated to make this year’s bazaar a true success.
The parish continues to freshen the church. Last issue we showcased the offices that are now a welcoming presence for all that enter. We welcome Frank and Jason M, our newest additions to our parish work force. With the approval of Fr. Kilian, Jason applied a new coat of paint in the vestibule area. Now with the vestibule of the church a nice white, it is a more prominent place for St. Elizabeth Seton’s statue, which has been moved to the west entrance. Jason, by the way, our new part-time maintenance man, is also a professional painter, so more surprises will come your way from his excellent work.
