Due to the Archdiocesan guidelines for CORONAVIRUS concerns, 

Holy Communion by wafer will be given at Masses but we will refrain

eighTEENTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME

AUGUST 2, 2020

Celebrant: Father William Corcoran


Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults

Candidates:

Ray Bonzani and Manuel Magaña


THIS SUNDAY'S FOCUS

WAITING IN JOYFUL HOPE

Our day to day lives are filled with various hungers and thirsts. 

Deepest among these is our hunger and thirst for God,

who alone can satisfy that need.


Let us pray:

Lord, you are near to all who call upon you. You ask us to pay attention, to be aware, to come to you, source of living water. Open our clenched fists, for why should we hang on to the anxiety and worry that do not bring us life? Help us to lift our eyes to you and wait in joyful hope. You give us more than we could ever ask for: overflowing baskets full of abundance.

  • SUNDAY MASS SONG SELECTIONS

    “When you sing, you pray twice…"

         ” I was recently given a request to post the songs we are singing at our recorded masses each week so parishioners can look up the lyrics and sing along.  As we adjust to this new normal, I thought this is a great idea.  The idea of everyone joining in song at their homes is heartwarming and spiritually uplifting.  I always say the building doesn’t make us a church, but the people.  We are the church and St. Elizabeth Seton is a singing church family.  Sing on!"

    - Linda McKeague, Director of Music
