An Important Note from Fr. Jim


March 25, 2020

 

Dear Parishioners and Friends,

We are living in uncertain times like no other. But, two things these days are certain: 1) God always loves and cares for us and never abandons us, even when God “seems” to be most distant, and 2) the most effective way we, as a parish community, can help limit the spread or contracting of this coronavirus is to stay at home. Therefore, Bishop Thomas has issued a Discontinuance Order for the entire Diocese of Las Vegas effective immediately, much of which we are already doing here at SEAS. In it he states:

“We continue to witness the increase of coronavirus-related illnesses in New York, California, and Washington State, and in other epicenters like Italy and Spain.

From these highly affected communities, we are learning important lessons. Most especially, we are learning that in order to break the back of the coronavirus pandemic, it is vitally necessary to discontinue all social interaction outside the home.

This reality has been underscored by the Governor's office, the Southern Nevada Health District, and the Centers for Disease Control.

Therefore, I have concluded that there needs to be whole-hearted cooperation with the medical community's advice, which is clear and compelling.

The time has arrived for us in the Diocese of Las Vegas to close all of our worship spaces entirely, thus discontinuing access to parish churches, adoration chapels, and other parish spaces where parishioners have gathered during these difficult days.”

This means that our entire parish campus is closed until further notice, and we will not be able to hold any kind of personal meetings which includes, but not limited to: confessions, counseling, or any other in-person appointments. We are available to speak with you through the phone, but please understand that confessions with any priest are not allowed remotely.

Most of us are working from home, if possible. Therefore, times for telephone conversations may be limited. Please call the parish office (702-228-8311) to make an appointment for a phone conversation. All staff are checking their voicemails regularly. But, please be patient as we adjust to situations which can change daily.

Bishop Thomas also discourages any meetings in personal homes. He states:

“I also encourage pastors to dissuade various groups, both related and unrelated to the parish (like charismatic, Marian, and fraternal organizations), from gathering in private homes, thus placing children and elderly in danger.”

Again, this has already been the recent practice here at SEAS.

Bishop Thomas, as our caring shepherd, ends by saying:

“Like all of you, I await the day when we can once again gather as a Diocesan and parish community, celebrating the Eucharistic Liturgy and rejoicing in one another's company.

Until then, I am consoled by the notion that the domestic Church [the faithful at home], so eloquently described in the documents of the Second Vatican Council, remains as the primary venue for prayer, instruction of the young, and a source of consolation and comfort for our families.

Please be certain of my daily prayers, blessings and loving support.”

You can read more in my letter in this weekend’s bulletin which will be sent by email blast this coming Saturday. Until then, know that all of the staff here at SEAS send you our love and prayers, and that we miss you dearly!


Peace always,  

Fr. James Michael Jankowski
Pastor











Pastoral Letter to the People of the Diocese of Las Vegas

 

March 18, 2020

 

My Dear Friends in Christ,

 

People across the entire globe have been plunged into a world of hardship and uncertainty as the coronavirus continues to take its toll in every nation.

 

As individuals and families, we are facing the specter of critical illness, certain economic hardship and the massive disruption of our daily lives.

 

The Church is no stranger to adversity, suffering or privation.

 

In times of difficulty, she has always raised her voice in prayer and earnest supplication, confident that God will hear our every prayer and answer all our pleas.

 

Down through the centuries, the Blessed Mother has played a vitally important role in times of trial, coming to us as a tender Mother, a tireless advocate, steadfast Intercessor and cherished friend. She has visited her people under the familiar titles of Virgin of Guadalupe, Our Lady of Antipolo and Our Lady of La Vang.

 

She is beloved in Poland as Our Lady of Czestochowa, in Ireland as Our Lady of Knock and in Japan as Our Lady of Akita. Mary is revered by the people in Bosnia-Herzegovina as Our Lady of Medugorje, and in Spain she is treasured as Our Lady of the Pillar. Mary is known in France as Our Lady of Lourdes and in Portugal as Our Lady of Fatima.

 

On May 13, 1846, the Bishops of the United States unanimously chose the Blessed Virgin Mary as the Patroness of our Nation. Their decision was ratified by Pope Pius IX on February 7 of the following year.

 

Now is the hour to turn to our Blessed Mother for her maternal help. She is always ready and willing to carry our prayers and petitions to the heart of her Son.

 

Mary's own words, contained in the Gospel of St. Luke, capture the special place that she holds in salvation history as the advocate and friend of God's holy people. The Scripture says, "My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord; my spirit rejoices in God my Savior. For he has looked upon his handmaid's lowliness; behold, from now on will all ages call me blessed."

 

I ask you, the people of the Diocese of Las Vegas, to turn to the Blessed Mother, who helps us keep the eyes of our hearts fixed on her Son Jesus during dark and trying days.

 

The words of a powerful prayer called the Memorare, and attributed to St. Bernard, assure us that when we turn to Mary in times of need we have this blessed assurance -- that never was it known that anyone who fled to her protection, implored her help or sought her intercession was left unaided.

 

When our Lady of Guadalupe appeared to Juan Diego, she posed to him a question that is intended also for you and me. Mary asked Juan Diego, "Am I not here, I who am your Mother?"

 

Her question is a not-so-subtle assurance that Mary is our Mother too, standing ready and willing to protect and defend us, her children, in times of trouble and uncertainty.

 

I ask you, the people of the Diocese of Las Vegas, to bring your troubles to Mary. Give her your burdens, your worries. Share with her your cares and concerns. Be assured that under her maternal mantle, prayers are answered and miracles still happen.

 

Mary will not forsake her children in their hour of need, nor will she neglect our prayers in times of difficulty and distress.

 

In the days ahead, I ask you to consider praying the Rosary as a family, and ask parents and grandparents to teach your children about the healing power of Mary's maternal care.

 

I ask all parishioners to pray the beautiful Memorare at the close of each day, directing your prayer toward those who are sick and suffering, those who have died, for healthcare workers and researchers, and for civic leaders who are under particular duress during these trying days.

 

I ask you to invite Mary our Mother into your hearts and homes and to venerate her as your loving Mother, as one who will lead you and your families closer to the heart of her Son.

 

Each Sunday, I ask you to consider reading the Sunday readings as a family, allowing the living Word of God to draw you into the heart of the Word made Flesh.

 

Finally, I commend our entire Diocese to the maternal care of Mary, entreating her to "pray for us, O Holy Mother of God," and protect our people with grace, peace and temporal relief.

 

I close this reflection with the consoling words of St. Francis De Sales, who had deep devotion to Our Lady, and unfailing faith in God's Provident care. He wrote, "Do not fear what will happen tomorrow. The same loving God who cares for you today will care for you tomorrow and every day. God will either shield you from suffering or will give you the unfailing strength to bear it. Be at peace then and put aside all anxious thoughts and imaginings."

 

Be certain of my daily prayers and blessings.

Most Reverend George Leo Thomas, Ph.D.
Bishop of Las Vegas

SAFEVOICE

Mobile App

 

Students, parents and faculty throughout Nevada now have access to SafeVoice, an anonymous reporting system used to report threats to the safety or well-being of students. SafeVoice was established by the Nevada Department of Education under SB 212 in 2017 to protect student wellness, prevent violence and save lives. In partnership with the Nevada Department of Public Safety, the SafeVoice program provides students a safe place to submit tips concerning their own safety or that of others. A fully trained professional team of experts responds in an appropriate manner 24/7/365. Tips always stay anonymous. Learn more at http://safevoicenv.org.

 

St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic School is fully accredited by the Western Catholic Educational Association (WCEA). Having completed our most recent WCEA school visit on March 7, 2018, we wish to share our "Report of Findings" with the entire parish and school community.

Click here to view the report.

Areas assessed include: involvement of shareholders, use of prior accreditation findings, assessment of the school’s Catholic identity, defining the school’s purpose, data analysis and use, acceptable progress by all students, curriculum and instruction, support for student spiritual and academic growth, resource management and development, and the capacity to implement and monitor an action plan.

At St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, we believe that continuing evaluation and improvement of the curriculum is essential to the development of an effective educational program that promotes a lifelong love of learning. The accreditation process is more than a stamp of approval or quality assurance. It is a collaborative results-oriented school improvement process that serves as the underpinning of an effective school.


Mission Statement

We, the community of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Roman Catholic Church, are dedicated to continuing the mission of Christ by proclaiming the word of God, celebrating the sacraments, and exercising the ministry of charity. We strive to respond to the Lord’s call of discipleship by nurturing a sense of belonging among parishioners and providing opportunities for living out the Gospel while joyfully embracing life and spiritual transformation. This commitment is our baptismal call and manifest in worship, education, evangelization, stewardship, fellowship, and service as we desire to do God’s will under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, our patron saint, St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, and the teaching office of the Catholic Church.
