“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”
— MATTHEW 5:14
St. Elizabeth Seton Catholic Church is a Roman Catholic Church Parish in the Diocese of Lafayette, Louisiana. St. Elizabeth Seton Catholic Church was established on September 14, 1975 — the same day that Elizabeth Ann Seton was canonized a saint.
Although established in 1975, the actual church building that stands today was not erected until 2000. At such time, when describing the new building, then-Pastor Father Harold Trahan offered this:
"People have used many different adjectives to describe our church: beautiful, inviting, open, inspiring, prayerful, unpretentious, and classy. What is significant to me that when using these words to describe our church, they are also describing our parish community. For indeed you are a community that is beautiful, inviting, open, inspiring, prayerful, unpretentious, and classy. I am proud to be your pastor."
