Preparing for the Sacraments

St. Elizabeth Ann Seton parish is committed to assist parents in the evangelization and the ongoing formation of their children and teens through the reception of the sacraments of Baptism, Reconciliation, Eucharist and Confirmation. Our Youth Sacramental Program is offered in conjunction with our Religious Education Program and is designed to open and prepare participant's hearts, minds, and souls for the reception of these sacraments.
