Outreach Ministries

The Angels of Hope....The mission of our Bereavement team, the Angels of Hope, is to organize and support St. Elizabeth Seton’s ministry of consolation. It is to assure that no member of our faith community grieves alone. We strive to provide the compassion of a loving God, reflected through the concern and care of parish members, to all who lose a loved one. The entire parish community – clergy and lay, staff and parishioners – shares in the responsibility to bring Christ’s comfort to the grieving, to be a living example of His Word: “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28
