Volunteer’s Code of Conduct
Our Children are the most important gifts God has entrusted to us. As a volunteer, I promise to strictly follow the rules and guidelines in this Volunteer’s
Code of Conduct as a condition of my providing services to the children and youth of The Diocese of Charleston. As a volunteer, I will: treat everyone
with respect, loyalty, patience, integrity, courtesy, dignity, and consideration. Avoid situations where I am alone with children, and/or youth at Church
activities. Use positive reinforcement rather than criticism, competition, or comparison when working with children and/ youth. Refuse to accept and
refrain from giving expensive gifts from children and/or youth and/or their parents without prior written approval from the pastor. Report any suspected
abuse to the pastor and appropriate local agencies. Cooperate fully in any investigation of abuse of children and/or youth. As a volunteer, I will not:
smoke or use tobacco products in the presence of children and/or youth. Use, possess, or be under the influence of illegal drugs or alcohol at any time.
Pose any health risk to children and/or youth (i.e., no fevers or other contagious situations). Strike, spank, shake, or slap children and/or youth.
Humiliate, ridicule, threaten, or degrade children and/or youth. Touch a child and/or youth in a sexual or other inappropriate manner. Use any discipline
that frightens or humiliates children and/or youth. I understand that as a volunteer with children and/or youth, I am required to take a Virtus class and
I am subject to a thorough background check including criminal history. I understand that any action inconsistent with this Code of Conduct or
failure to take action mandated by this Code of Conduct may result in my removal as a volunteer with children and/or youth.

Welcome! If you attend here regularly, please register.
Registration forms are available in the church foyer or parish
office. To avoid problems or misunderstandings, especially
when planning baptisms, marriages, requesting sponsorship
forms for baptisms or confirmation, or for other special
requests, be sure that you are registered and are an active
Active Membership is determined by the following
1. Being properly registered for a sufficient period of time
(see below).
2. Faithful attendance at Mass on Sundays and Holy Days of
3. Use of our envelope system (even if you are not able to
contribute) as this allows us to identify your
active attendance, and also to provide contribution
statements for IRS tax purposes. There are many ways
to contribute to the parish other than financially by giving of your time and talents. There are many ministries
and activities available, one or more of which may appeal to you.
♦ BAPTISM PREPARATION requires 3 months
active membership plus attendance at a pre-baptismal
class. Pre-registration is required. Also, 3 months active
membership is required for the issuance of a sponsorship
form to be a godparent for Baptism or Confirmation.
♦ MARRIAGE requires 6 months active
participation plus the 6 months marriage preparation
period required by the diocese.
The Sacraments of the Catholic Church are the saving
activity of God effected through the ministry of His
Church. It is superstition to attribute the effectiveness
of sacraments to their mere external performance apart
from the interior dispositions they demand of us. If the
sacraments are to have their intended effects, we the
recipients must be properly disposed to receive them,
which ordinarily includes:
1. To have Catholic Faith and be in full communion
with the Catholic Church, and
2. For all except Baptism and Confession, to be in the
state of sanctifying Grace, i.e., free of the guilt of
serious (mortal) sin which has not been previously
reconciled via sacramental absolution in integral
confession to a priest. This is a most serious
requirement, for one who receives the Eucharist (or
any other sacrament of the living) “in an unworthy
manner will be guilty of profaning the Body and
Blood of the Lord.”
cf. 1 Cor 11:27-29; CCC n. 1385
St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish invites adults interested
in the Catholic Christian Community to enter RCIA
(Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults). This is a
process of instruction, prayer, and experience aimed at
helping adults grow in the relationship of faith. Please
call the parish office for information.
Scheduled confessions are every Saturday from
4 - 5 pm and by appointment.
Please advise the office if you are admitted to the hospital
or home-bound due to illness and/or age.
Reservations are required. The Church and parish center
are here for the use of our parishioners. Forms to reserve
the buildings are in the parish office.
Information for the bulletin must be submitted in
writing fifteen days prior to publication date.
Visitors are always welcome to worship with us.
However, the Catholic Church does not offer open Holy
Communion - the Sacraments of the Catholic Church are
reserved exclusively for Catholics who are properly
disposed to receive them. This is not a lack of Christian
hospitality, but merely recognition of real divisions of
faith and practice, which unfortunately separates rather
than unite Christians.
Catholic Faith is an expression of the Revealed
Word of God communicated as the Deposit of Catholic
Faith and Morals, while Holy Communion is the
mysterious, yet real, true and substantial Body, Blood,
Soul and Divinity of our Lord Jesus Christ communicated
sacramentally. Jesus is The Way, The Truth and The Life,
and in Him Truth and Life are inseparably One. Therefore
in His Mystical Body, the Church, Catholic Faith and
Sacrament are morally inseparable.
Non-Catholics and those Catholics who should not
receive Holy Communion (including those Catholics
married outside the Church and those in need of the
Sacrament of Confession) are asked to pray for a
spiritual communion with the Lord Jesus and for the unity
of His Church.

Prudence is a virtue which gives guidance to
direct our everyday life when two conflicting interests
vie for our loyalty. It is not always easy to know what
to do - how to maintain a proper balance in order of
priorities. Christians are simultaneously citizens of two
cities: our earthly one (the United States), and our
heavenly one (the Church). A Christian should be a
good citizen, pay taxes, serve his country and vote. He
must love his country and be concerned about the true
common good of all. The state has its own sphere in
promoting communal welfare and in maintaining law
and order, but always under God to whom it is
ultimately responsible.
The Pharisees of Jesus’ time were against
paying taxes to the Romans, while the Herodians
(supporters of Herod, puppet king of the Romans)
collaborated and paid taxes. Jesus goes beyond the
question they asked Him. Legitimate government has its
right, but God has His rights too. We must strive to
“give to Caesar what is Caesar’s, but give to “God what
is God’s”. Should there be a real conflict between the
two, we must obey God rather than man.
