St. Elizabeth Seton Men’s Group ! Service, Spirituality & Fun
St. Elizabeth Seton Men's Group has been active in the parish for most of the parish history. We meet on the first Wednesday of every month. We have been engaged in service to the parish through crèche set up, Christmas traffic control and in the past have coordinated small home repairs, clean-ups and bike drives.
This year we will study "take a biblical walk thru the mass" Dr. Edward SRI. Join us as we try to reinvigorate our involvement in the mass and find the spiritual strength, guidance and support we need to live our regular daily lives from the mass.
We will explore the three key aspects of the mass as a sacrifice, real presence, and holy communion and discover how the mass is a true re-presentation of Christ’s redeeming sacrifice on the cross.

Consecration Of The Diocese Of Bridgeport To The Sacred Heart Of Jesus
On Saturday, November 5, 2016 at St. Augustine Cathedral, 1:00 PM – 5:00 PM
The Meaning of Christian Pilgrimage Hearing the word “pilgrimage” might bring to mind images of men and women of long ago, trekking over difficult, hilly terrain, on their way to a distant church, in which to pray, offer reparation, and ask the Lord for particular graces and blessings. But pilgrimages are not just from times past. They are still very much part of the Church’s life. Pilgrimages are privileged, spiritual opportunities for all of us to grow in our faith.
Our diocesan family of faith will have the opportunity to make such a pilgrimage on Saturday, November 5th. Rather than traveling to a far-off place, the destination of our diocesan pilgrimage will be St. Augustine Cathedral in Bridgeport so that as many people as possible may take part. At the Cathedral that day, each pilgrim will have the opportunity to pass through the Holy Door and to receive the Jubilee Indulgence, to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation, and to be present as Bishop Caggiano consecrates the Diocese of Bridgeport to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
Everyone is encouraged to attend the entire event, but people are welcome to participate in as much of the afternoon as possible. SES will have a bus leaving from the parish at 11:30am. If you would like to travel with us, please reserve your seat by signing up in the back of the church or calling the parish office. See the flyer for details...
Read the letters about the pilgrimage from Bishop Caggiano.
