Pick Up a Bottle From the Bin in the Narthex This Weekend!

The Seton Lake Ridge Respect Life Committee invites you to share Christ’s love with our mothers and babies, both born and unborn, by participating in the God’s Gift Baby Bottle Campaign. Simply take a bottle from the marked bin in the church Narthex and fill it with cash/loose change or check made payable to St. Elizabeth Ann Seton with Baby Bottle Campaign written on the memo line.

Please return your bottle to the collection bin in the Narthex on the weekend of January 16/17 or 23/24.

Lessons contain material contrary to Catholic teaching about the truth of human person and human sexuality.  One way Catholic parents can assert their role as the primary educators of their children is exercising their right to opt their children out of any or all the these lessons.
