A very big welcome to Brennan Ferris!

Brennan Ferris, a seminarian for the Diocese of Wilmington, arrived at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish this past Tuesday.  Brennan will be spending ten weeks with our parish to learn everything that goes on here and how Fr. Roger serves our parish in so many ways.  Please keep Brennan in your prayers and continue to pray for more young men and women to answer the call to religious life like Brennan has!

What a great year!!!

This past Sunday, Seton Youth Ministry had their closing session before summer break.  It was a great time with lots of games.  We’ll be starting again in September!  Have a great summer everyone!

This past Wednesday, Seton Youth Ministry went down to Dover Downs to celebrate the Diocese of Wilmington’s Catholic Youth Ministry annual awards.  Winners from St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish included youths Ariana Acosta and Lauren Rodriguez and adult leaders Amanda Ramsey, Ambrosia Mondoa, James Holman, and Thomas Vadden.  Family as well as youth ministry members went along for the ride to Dover to celebrate this great award ceremony.  Check out the pictures below!  Clicking on them will also get you a larger view of the pictures.

We had some amazing food!

We also had fun too!  Can you see the change Fr. Roger made to Francis’s shirt?

That’s all for today everyone!  What a blessed time.  Please continue to pray that God blesses our youth ministry at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton and the other youth ministries in the Dioceses of Wilmington!
