REGISTRATION NOW OPEN for the next Seton Service Days event on
APRIL 22, 2017
(with a deadline for registration of April 17th)
St. Elizabeth Ann Seton has a long tradition of serving others, through a variety of service oriented ministries. However…it was evident that many parishioners were not able to commit to “regular” service ministries…and that there was a need to offer opportunities for people of the parish to experience the joy of serving others! Seton Service Days has been established as a parish-wide service event which occurs twice a year. Service sites are set up to accommodate a variety of ages ranges, talents, skill sets, transportation limitations and time commitment requirements. Various agencies around the Dallas Metroplex benefit from the hands, heads and hearts of Seton parishioners!!! Our Seton Service Days events are promoted through the parish website, social media, bulletin, pulpit announcements and parish-wide email system…as well as through organizations within the parish (Faith Formation, Men’s Club, Women’s Club, and other ministries)
Seton parishioners gather together to lend a helping hand to those in the Dallas Area. There are a variety of projects to choose from, some done at Seton and some done at sites throughout the area. There are projects available for all abilities and ages. Projects in the past have included such things as:
Sorting food at area food banks
Gardening at various agencies
Putting together Ikea furniture for the Catholic Charities Refugee Empowerment program
Helping assemble "teaching" toy kits for A.V.A.N.C.E.
Make fleece blankets and assist in the office of a breast cancer support center.
Sorting and organize donations at area charity Thrift Shops
Making and serving lunches at homeless shelters and community centers.
Doing home repairs at various sites for groups like Habitat for Humanity.
and many other options that change each year.
Your gifts and strengths can be used to help others!
(All Minors MUST be accompanied by a parent or guardian)
Participants receive a FREE Seton Service Days T-shirt!!!
