Religious Formation at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church is a cooperative effort between families, catechists, and parish staff. Our goal is to provide opportunities for each family to become involved in the religious formation of the parish children.
All those who volunteer with children in the parish are required to complete the online "Safe & Sacred" Training once every three years. Click here to learn more about Safe & Sacred from the Diocese of Lafayette.

The children go to the Daily Mass Chapel for their own Liturgy of the Word to hear the readings and have a reflection geared toward children ages 4 – 7.
