SURVIVING THE HOLIDAYS
November 2018 and December 2018
“‘Tis the season to be jolly..” so the song goes.
Well, at a time when we’re supposed to be merry, - what if we aren’t?
Maybe a loved one has died & there is an empty place at the table. Maybe we are suffering a loss through death, divorce, separation, and are thinking desperately of “‘just getting through the holidays.‘”
We could be out of work, struggling with a life threatening illness, a loss of relationship, or a hundred other problems.
This program will not erase the memories nor will it eliminate the pain. It will, however, help the participant realize that her/his emotions are ‘normal’ while giving the opportunity to share with others experiencing the same feelings.
There will also be time to focus on the real meaning of the holidays. Join us.
November 14 and December 12
6pm to 7:30pm at Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton Youth Center
87 Beacon Street, Florence
Call 210-9339 for more information
Welcome to the Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish website! We are very happy you are visiting us here. Please allow us to introduce ourselves. We are a Catholic parish, part of the Diocese of Springfield under Bishop Mitch Rozanski.
No matter who you are, where you live, where you’ve come from, or what you’re seeking, everyone is welcome at Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton!
Our simple Mission Statement captures what we strive for as a Roman Catholic Parish of the Diocese of Springfield; “Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish is called together by God as a faith sharing community to radiate, celebrate and proclaim Jesus Christ through prayer, word, worship and service as we seek to build up His one body, adapting to the diverse needs of the people in whose midst we live and witness. ”As human persons and as disciples of Christ we, like you, are constantly changing and developing, growing and evolving our identity as Christians. As a Parish we feel we can do this better within a community setting and so I invite you to explore your faith with us. You can learn a lot about us from this website and please come, worship with us, or contact us and I think you’ll see why we proclaim “All are welcome here!”
Father Francis Reilly, Pastor
