40th Anniversary Kickoff
On October 1st, we will begin a year-long celebration of being a parish. We will begin with 40 Hours Devotion. Please see the signup sheets in the narthex, or call the parish office to spend some time with our Lord in front of the Blessed Sacrament. Come pray for one hour or a few minutes…bring your whole family. Let’s fill the chapel every hour with parishioners spending time with our Lord in prayer and thanksgiving. We still have several times that need to be filled (see the schedule below). Then join us after each Mass on October 1st & 2nd for refreshments and learn about upcoming events to look forward to throughout the year. Pick up a holy card and other anniversary items.

Fast and Pray for our Country
Beginning Wednesday, August 31, we invite you to fast from food from midnight to 6:00pm. If that is not possible, fast from whatever you can – soda, TV, radio, video games… We also invite you to pray with us. We will pray the rosary at 5:30pm and Mass will be celebrated at 6:00pm at St. Andrew. Why are we inviting you to do this? Our country needs our prayers. More than ever, we need to turn to our Lord and ask for help. We place our trust in the Lord. Whether you can join us or not, please fast and pray for our country. On Wednesday, September 21, rosary and Mass will be held at Seton. We will alternate churches each Wednesday through November 23rd.
A Novena for St. Andrew / St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish School
O Good and Gracious God,
We praise and thank you for the students in our parish school. It is a sacred privilege to continue the teaching mission of your son, Jesus. We hear his words in our hearts: “Let the children come to me! Do not hinder them.” Please listen to our prayers as we ask you, Lord, to remove whatever hinders parents from choosing our Catholic school for their children. Guide their thinking and their decisions. May parents see the great benefits of a Catholic education that can last a lifetime. Bless our efforts. Help us be a school for all. Lord we hold in prayer all the students you will send to our school. Thank you Lord for blessing us with a future filled with promise and hope. We ask this through the intercession of Mary our Blessed Mother, St. Andrew and St. Elizabeth Ann Seton. Amen.
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.
Are you interested in learning more about the Catholic Faith?
We welcome all who would be interested in learning more about the Catholic Faith, and maybe even becoming Catholic. The Catholic Church traces its beginnings to Jesus Christ. Our Lord gave us the Church, and through the Church, we have been given the Magisterium, the Sacraments, and the Bible, and so much more, all guided by the Holy Spirit. If you have any questions or would like to
make an appointment to talk, call Patty Norris at 575 - 0119 or email her at email@example.com. You can also call Fr. Michael Cordier at 575-0119. May the Spirit help you ask a question and begin the most exciting journey of a lifetime.
