Meals on Wheels

Thanks to our Meals on Wheels volunteers, 9 seniors receive a hot meal and a friendly hello every Monday through Thursday morning. If you are interested in serving as a substitute delivery driver, call Claire Bissell. You can serve one or two days per month. The route takes less than an hour, and then you are on your way, secure in the knowledge that you have nourished the bodies and spirits of “the least among us.”

 Embrace Grace Ministry

  Embrace Grace is a ministry for unwed, pregnant, young women who find themselves faced with an unplanned pregnancy.  It allows the church to be a safe place for these girls to turn where they can feel welcome and supported.  This program began at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton in 2018 and to date we have supported eight young mothers and their babies with the financial, spiritual and emotional support they need.

To learn more about Embrace Grace visit www.embracegrace.com or contact group leader Claire Bissell at 318-798-1887 ext. 116 or [email protected]  If you would like to be a part of the Embrace Grace team or help out in some way, please contact Claire in the church office.  Together we can make a difference in the lives of these precious little ones.
