They’re marked All Souls.

MSP is launching a new ministry called Faith Community Nursing. A faith community nurse is a Registered Nurse who facilitates programs based on the identified needs of our parish. There are many ways to volunteer, one of the first being blood pressure tests. We are in need of fully licensed medically trained individuals to take and record blood pressures. See the Bulletin for contact information.
Join the Music Program of Mother Seton -- Adult, Contemporary, and Youth Choirs! We need singers and instrumentalists of all ages. See the Sept. 21, 2014 Bulletin for more.
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.
Our School of Religion still needs Volunteers! If interested, or for more information, contact Dominique or Candida at the School of Religion office, 301-444-3496.
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.
