WOMEN'S MINISTRIES EVENING OF PRAYER AND RENEWAL
JANUARY 27, 2014 @ 7:30 PM
All Women of the parish are cordially invited to the Spiritual Evening of Prayer and Renewal. Let us step away from the busyness of our lives to reflect upon our many blessings with a spirit of gratitude and appreciation. Let us continue our Discipleship of compassionate service to each other. Fellowship and refreshments follow the service. Please call Rose Kowalczyk 908-359-8084
or Pam Mayewski 908-874-8524
One parishioner who attends every year shared her thoughts on the service. "The Woman's Evening of Reflection is a spiritual, comforting evening of kinship for all the women in the parish -a balm for the soul, an uplifting of the heart, a prayerful bonding of minds and spirits. It is personally reflective, mentally soothing and deeply touching for all the participants. Please come and join us for a meaningful evening."

The Seton Ministry for Women
The mission of the Seton Ministry is to provide for women opportunities to grow in their Catholic faith and to live that faith in community and service to other women. Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton once said,” God is like a looking glass in which souls see each other. The more we are united to Him by love, the nearer we are to those who belong to Him.” This quote captures the mission that our group has undertaken for many years—to bring us nearer to God and each other.
In 1982, Saint Charles Borromeo became the first parish founded in the newly created Diocese of Metuchen. The early years of the parish saw the formation of many ministries, with the “Women’s Club” being the most notable. The Women’s Club was established in 1986, under the patronage of Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton, to provide spiritual and social programs for the women of the parish, and to serve those in need. Over the years, the many projects, events, and activities sponsored by the Women’s Club have provided opportunities for women of the parish to come together, and have helped Saint Charles become the vibrant parish community that it is today.
In 2010, the Women’s Club took on a new name as part of a fresh response to the evolving needs of our parish. Looking to our patron, the group is now known as the Seton Ministry for Women. Our new name reflects both the spirit of the group and our important work as a parish ministry, centering on three important areas:
- Spiritual activities for women (Communion Breakfast, Lenten Retreat, Seder Supper)
- Fellowship and cultural gatherings (movie/theater outings, book discussions)
- Outreach to, and advocacy on behalf of, women and children in need.
All women of the parish and their guests are welcome to participate in our gatherings and activities.
