Choir! (Adult, Contemporary, and Youth choirs). Please consider joining one of the music ministries at Mother Seton Parish. We are always looking for singers and instrumentalists of all ages and abilities to use their talents in worship. See the Bulletin for more and for contact information.
Mother Seton Youth Choir: Boys and girls, grades 3 to 12 are welcome to join. We learn music, participate in the liturgy, and PRAISE THE LORD! Please sign up on the sheet attached to the POSTER in the church narthex. First practice is Tues., Sept. 16, from 6 to 7:15 p.m. in the Music Rm. located in McCabe Center.

Youth-Led 5 P.M. Sunday Mass: Beginning in September, we’d like the MSP Youth Group involved in the 5 p.m. Sunday Mass. They meet at 6 p.m. on Sundays, so we’d like to offer a Youth Mass in which they can participate. Do your kids have musical talent? Can they sing or play an instrument? The choir CHOIR would be great for them! If they don’t like to sit still and would like to collect money, they would be a great USHER! If they have a loud voice and like to talk (almost everyone fits that category) - they would be a great READER (with a little practice and free coaching). If you’re interested, contact information can be found in the Aug. 31, 2015 Bulletin.
Young Adults Group: If you are in your 20s or 30s, please stop by to meet other young adults from our Parish. We meet every Tuesday. Some go to Confession at 6 p.m. at Mother Seton, or you can join us for dinner at 6:30 p.m. See the July 20 Bulletin for details.

And from ADW.org: After the resurrection, Jesus confirmed Peter in the role of shepherd and leader of his flock: "'Simon, son of John, do you love me more than these?' He said to him, 'Yes, Lord, you know that I love you.' Jesus said to him,... 'Feed my sheep'" (John 21:15, 17). Christ sent the apostles, and the apostles through their successors, to continue Christ's ministry. Blessed Pope John Paul II provided guidance, instruction, teaching and leadership to the Church and was beatified on May 1, 2011.
CHANGES TO THE ROMAN MISSAL began the First
Sunday of Advent 2011, the weekend of Nov. 26-27, which was also the beginning of a new liturgical
year. At Mother Seton Parish we have two places
for you to follow the new prayers and responses.
First, everything you need to know can be found in
the blue book, called “Revised Order of the Mass
(Hymnal Supplement)” located in the back of the
Hymnal Books placed in the racks on the backs of
the pews. Second, the singing parts of the Mass of
Joy and Peace can be found on the white cards
located in the hymnal racks.
