"It is to those who have the most need of us that we ought to show our love more especially." - St. Francis de Sales
Our intent is to bring the presence of the Catholic Church to those Catholics who cannot attend church due to injury, illness, advanced age, or circumstance. We distribute the Body of Christ to persons who are homebound, hospitalized, or in nursing homes/assisted living facilities in the Pickerington community. We arrange for the seriously ill and terminally ill to receive the Sacrament of the Sick. Most important, we spend time in conversation with members of our parish, allowing them to be loved, cared for, and reconnected to our parish.
Seton Prayer Chain
When you sign up for the Seton Prayer Chain you will receive a periodic email that contains prayer intentions from fellow parishioners. Your only responsibility is to take a few moments and pray for those people. If you or someone you know is in need of prayers, you can request the prayers of over 200 members regardless if you are a member or not.
The goal of the Bereavement Ministry is to assist those who have experienced the death of a loved one, providing them with empathy and compassion, helping them through the funeral and into recovery in many tangible ways.
Sleeping Bag Ministry
The goal of our ministry is to make warm sleeping bags for the homeless in Columbus, Lancaster, and surrounding communities. We hope to help those people without shelter to stay warm in the winter months.
Helping Hands is here to assist parishioners needing short term emergency child care assistance and organizing food preparation for families following a funeral.
Seton Conference Society of St. Vincent de Paul
The Seton Conference Society of St. Vincent de Paul is part of the Diocese of Columbus and the Society of St. Vincent de Paul U.S.A. This charitable organization offers tangible assistance to those in need on a person-to-person basis. An essential principle of the Society's work is to provide help while conscientiously maintaining the confidentiality and dignity of those who are served.
