Have You Seen the Video Below?
This video (which includes some SEAS cantors, our very own Director of Music and Liturgy, and scenes from the SEAS sanctuary) was shot over a period of two weeks, and ALL of the audio was recorded by those involved at home on their CELL PHONES.

The Surrender Novena Begins on Monday!
Don Dolindo, one time spiritual director for St. Padre Pio, received from Jesus the words of the Surrender Novena. It is a prayer that is especially timely now, when world events feel out of control and we are trying to grow in trust and abandonment to God’s providence. This novena is all about letting go of the outcome you desire and letting God manifest His will.

Beginning Monday, January 11, look for a different prayer each day (on our website HERE) through the 19th. The novena will also appear on our Facebook page.

Any Chance You're Free On Tuesday?
