Dear Fellow Elizabethans,
In 2017, a very significant event occurred in our community. Our beloved Pastor, Fr. Joe McGaffin, was called home to the arms of Jesus, just as he was in the process of returning to us from a serious illness. We were all shaken by this, but our faith enabled us to continue our journey here in Sun City, in the hope that God will bless us in our loss, and guide us in his way.
And God did bless us. He smiled on us in July of that year. Sending us a wonderful priest to look after us, His flock. Our shepherd has touched every aspect of our community, from our children, in the Religious Education programs and the RCIA, to the Parish life and outreach, through organizations such as the St. Vincent de Paul Society, the Knights of Columbus, and the Seton Society, to our church itself, with our beautiful new Adoration, and finally, to his great care for those suffering and preparing to meet our Savior.
I was privileged to serve our community as the Liturgical Minister under Fr. Kilian’s leadership at St. Elizabeth Seton Parish. I have witnessed and shared in the hard work of looking after us, so I am aware of his great love and care for us. I hope you will all join me in saying.
THANK YOU, FATHER KILIAN, AND MAY GOD BLESS YOU AS YOU CONTINUE TO FOLLOW HIS CALL!
P.S. Come back and visit us soon!
