Prayer by St. Elizabeth Ann Seton
Lord Jesus, Who was born for us in a stable, lived for us a life of pain and sorrow, and died for us upon a cross; say for us in the hour of death, Father, forgive, and to Your Mother, Behold your child. Say to us: “This day you shall be with Me in paradise.” Dear Savior, leave us not, forsake us not. We thirst for You, Fountain of Living Water. Our days pass quickly along, soon all will be consummated for us. To Your hands we commend our spirits, now and forever. Amen.
Pastoral Region Plan Complete
Thanks to the extraordinary work of the Pastoral Region Coordinating Committee in 2014, the Pastoral Region Plan for St. Andrew and St. Elizabeth Ann Seton is now complete. If you would like to read the completed Pastoral Region Plan, Exhibit A - C, Exhibit D - H, click on these three links.
The review of the process that we can all expect over the next two years is on June 30, 2015, Fr. Rob Waller will retire as pastor of St. Andrew. In the spring of 2015, his position will be “open listed.” In situations like this, sometimes a “parochial administrator” is named who would have the same responsibilities as pastor, but for only a two-year term. However, if the right priest candidate surfaces at the right time, there is the possibility of a “pastor” being named to St. Andrew who will automatically become the pastor of the Pastoral Region of St. Andrew and St. Elizabeth Ann Seton in 2017 when it is fully implemented. In June of 2017, Fr. Michael Cordier will complete his term as pastor of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish. Fr. Cordier does not intend to present himself as a candidate for the position of pastor of the Pastoral Region.
