Oath of Fidelity to the Magisterium
I will, on assuming my role at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church, promise that I will always preserve communion with the Catholic Church, whether in word or in action.
In carrying out my charge, which is committed to me in the name of the Church, I will, to the best of my ability, preserve the Deposit of Faith in its entirety, and hand it on faithfully. Whatsoever teachings (e.g. contraception, abortion, euthanasia, pre-marital sex, ordination of women, homosexual acts, etc.) are contrary to the Church’s teaching, I will shun.
I will foster the common discipline of the whole Church and urge the observance of all ecclesiastical laws, especially those that are contained in Sacred Scripture, the Catechism of the Catholic Church and the Code of Canon Law, including the solemn obligation to attend Mass every Sunday and Holy Day of Obligation.
