About our Auxiliary:
The Sons of Mother Seton Auxiliary #9847 was founded on September 11, 1999 with the support of the Knights of Columbus Council #9847 and St. Elizabeth Ann Seton parish in Fayetteville, NC. We are a vibrant service organization of Catholic women age 18 and older who are willing to make a difference in today's society. By conducting a variey of programs, we bring women together enabling them to strengthening their bonds of friendship with other women within the parish community. Columbiettes are committed to the preservation of family life. We address the religious needs of the Church and community where we live, worship, work and play. Columbiettes participate in church, community, family, youth and Knights of Columbus activities.
