As the Church Gathered at Shrub Oak, we 4000 families and singles, of all ages, backgrounds and stages of development, residing in Northern Westchester and Putnam counties, are one of the 414 Catholic parishes in the 10 counties of the Archdiocese of New York. We have responded to the summons of the Savior by choosing to intertwine our lives with that of Christ and with each other, as the first parish in the world graced with the name of Elizabeth Ann (Bayley) Seton, the first American-born saint.
" If our gift is to speak God's message, we should do it according to the faith that we have; if it is to serve, we should serve; if it is to teach, we should teach; if it is to encourage others, we should do so. Whoever shares with others, should do it generously; whoever has authority, should work hard; whoever shows kindness to others, should do it cheerfully. "Letter of St. Paul to the Romans 12:4-8
