This multi-denominational help center is located at 19 North 13th Street. Many Catholic individuals and families volunteer their services each week on Saturdays. Circle U tries to meet the needs of as many people as possible. A meal is served to anyone who wants one and once a month people can pick up a food basket. Circle U is open from 10-2, Monday through Saturday, for people to drop off donations. The center is always in need of money (to purchase food), food (non-perishable or in-season fruits and vegetables), and clothing.

Our blood donors help supply blood for any of our parish members in need. Donating blood is safe, simple and saves lives. One pint can help save the lives of three or four people. Seton Catholic High School sponsors two blood drives each year, but the need is there all year. Individuals can donate during the school blood drive or by making an appointment at the Community Blood Bank.
