Members of the Sunshine Committee telephone new registrants to St. Elizabeth Seton Parish. Their purpose is to extend an informal welcome in a one-on-one situation, to answer any questions new parishioners might have and offer both information and friendship in an effort to make newcomers feel truly welcome. In addition, members of the Sunshine Committee are making dinners for new mothers and sick parishioners, driving to medical appointments or just making a friendly call or visit to anyone in need. For more information and/or to place a request for your needs please contact Laura Danner, 203-438-6956 (This email address is being protected from spambots.

“Trust in Him at all times, O people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge.”  - Psalm 62:8

The holidays are supposed to be joyful so people who experience great sadness and depression often will not share their true feelings with others. Those who might have the holiday blues include parents whose children no longer live at home, seniors who are widowed or have lost many of their friends, and any person who is separated from family and friends. These losses and separations take the joy out of their holidays. To give them back some enjoyment, include them in your activities, encourage them to get involved in church and acknowledge their feelings and losses. Support them when they are blue.
