About St. Elizabeth Ann Seton
St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Church, is a vibrant community in Troy, Michigan, with a rich history rooted in faith and growth. The journey began in 1970 as a Mass Station at the First Methodist Church of Troy, with just 50 families seeking spiritual connection. Originally named the Catholic Community of Troy, the early days were marked by the dedication of priests from Guardian Angels in Clawson.
In 1975, the community sought parish status, and in September of that year, they became the first in the country to be named in honor of the recently canonized Elizabeth Ann Seton. With the assignment of the first official priest, Father Arthur Baranowski, in December 1975, the parish truly took root.
Over the years, our community blossomed, and by 1978, the original 50 families had grown to 419. The need for a physical worship site led to the groundbreaking of the church on July 1st, 1980. Less than a year later, on May 2nd, 1981, the late Cardinal John Francis Deardan presided at the dedication and consecration of the altar.
At the church, they invite you to join them in celebrating the services, where the warmth of community and the foundation of faith come together. Experience the spiritual journey that has shaped us into the welcoming parish we are today.
