Our parish’s new Senior Club meets every Thursday, from 10am-2pm in the Seton Parish Center. Thursday gatherings consist of an invited speaker with refreshments, followed by bingo, card games, small group classes and fraternity.
Seton's Holy Name Society would like to offer a big THANK YOU to all of the parishioners and sponsors who participated in this year's Golf Outing. Thanks to everyone's generosity we were able to raise $8,000 for the Deacon Bruno Scholarship Fund, which will help parish students who would like to attend Catholic high school.
Catholic boys and girls who are in the 5th grade and above are eligible. Our parish needs young people to serve the Holy Mass who are: serious about their faith + reliable + trustworthy + able to work with others.

Cardinal Dolan led the faithful in praying the rosary for the people of India who are sick and suffering from the coronavirus on Saturday, May 8th at the Shrine of Mary, Help of Christians in Stony Point. The Cardinal extends a special invitation to the people of the Archdiocese of New York to continue praying in a special way for the people of India, where the coronavirus continues to have a devastating impact. Cardinal Dolan has also asked the parishes of the archdiocese to consider raising funds to help alleviate the suffering in India, as they have generously done on many other occasions in the past to help people in need.

Due to the central importance of Easter to the Christian faith, the Catholic Church requires that all Catholics who have made their First Communion receive the Holy Eucharist sometime during the Easter season, which lasts through Pentecost Sunday, 50 days after Easter. (They should also take part in the Sacrament of Penance before receiving this Easter Communion.)
As we move forward, the need to prepare the church for upcoming sacramental celebrations for our children (First Communion, Confirmation) makes it necessary to return Daily Eucharistic Adoration to the chapel. M-F, 12noon-3pm. All are welcome!

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops is urging federal lawmakers to oppose legislation known as the "Equality Act" because it discriminates against people of faith and threatens unborn human life.

Cremation is permitted by the Catholic Church, and Catholics are reminded that the cremains (ashes) are to be treated with respect and dignity. Cremains should be buried or interred as soon as possible after a Funeral Mass.
