Outreach Ministry

The Outreach Ministry mission is twofold: (1) to those in our parish community who find themselves in need of assistance – whether through on-site or referral assistance to local agencies and (2) to encourage and incorporate as many SEAS parishioners to serve to our parish and community through hands-on volunteer efforts as they arise within our parish and community.

DONATE

We supply our food pantry and other ministries by generous donations from our friends and parishioners. To donate, please drop items in the Black Bins in the Narthex of the Church. To donate financially, click here.

VOLUNTEER

Our ministry is only possible because of our wonderful volunteers. If you feel called to serve, please contact the Outreach Office at 817-623-2424 or email . Volunteers must be Safe Environment trained.

Thank you for submitting your application.  A representative from the Outreach Office will contact you within 1-2 business days to schedule an appointment.  An interview will be required before any financial assistance is offered; you will need to complete additional paperwork at that time.  Please note that our office has a limited budget and will likely not be able to assist with rent, however we are happy to offer you alternative resources/referrals.  At this time, we are most able to assist with utility or other similar cost items, but no guarantees can be made until a representative has interviewed you.

If you are in immediate need of food, boxes of nonperishable groceries are available.  Please contact the office at 817-623-2424 or email for more information

Outreach Ministries

Baby Closet

St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Outreach has partnered with Catholic Charities Gabriel Project to create the SEAS Baby Closet. The closet is a resource for mothers in crisis pregnancies. We provide both supplies for mothers and for their babies/other children. Some of the items we offer include clothes up to size 5T, toiletries, diapers, wipes, blankets, and other supplies. If you or someone you know needs help, please contact SEAS Outreach at 817-623-2424 or .

We are continuously accepting donations of all kinds to stock our shelves. Currently, our greatest needs include:

  • Pull ups
  • Baby shampoo and lotion
  • Toiletries for moms
  • New Pacifiers
  • Diaper bags

We take most items used, with the exceptions being used mattresses, car seats, breast pump tubing, bottles, and pacifiers. We do ask that all used items are in very good condition, with no stains, tears, or heavy wearing. We also do not accept large furniture donations due to storage space constraints. If you want to donate your time instead, we are always in need of volunteers to sort and organize new donations. If you are interested or have any additional questions, please contact Emma Bouillion at 817-623-2413 or

Seasonal Projects

SEAS Thanksgiving Food Drive, Winter Coat Drive, Christmas Angel Trees, Dignity Closet drives, Summer time service, and other special projects as may arise within our parish and community.

Volunteers can help to decorate the tree, and sort and deliver the gifts. For current volunteer opportunities or to donate, contact the SEAS Outreach Office at 817-623-2424.
