Groundbreaking set for Seton church addition

The St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Church in Crofton will break ground Sunday for a 10,000-square-foot addition to its property at 1800 Seton Drive.

A ceremony is scheduled for after the 11 a.m. mass, with Bishop William Newman, a vicar general of the Archdiocese of Baltimore, presiding.

The Roman Catholic congregation of about 1,500 has nearly tripled since the church building was completed in 1981, a church spokeswoman said. The increase has been more dramatic in the last few years because of construction in the Crofton area, said Kathy Molster, the church's administrative associate.

The new parish center will provide space for church activities, including youth meetings, and offices for the church's religious education department.

"We're quite thankful to get started. We need the space," Ms. Molster said.

Parishioners have been conscientious about giving during the last few years, even difficult financial times, she said. Construction on the $425,855 parish center is slated to take four or five months.

The church is named after Elizabeth Ann Seton, the first American-born saint.
