“...sharing means to be a neighbour to all human beings, to recognize a common dignity, to understand needs and to sustain them in finding a remedy, with the same spirit of love which is lived in the family.”
Pope Francis

SERVICE: Taking Care of His Suffering Body

Social Concerns

Mother Seton parishioners reach out to others through the very practical work of feeding the hungry brothers and sisters in our midst, clothing those who are in need, and providing other sustenance and care.


Society of St. Vincent de Paul: Join us in the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, a Catholic organization meeting the needs of the poor and disadvantaged through charity and prayer. We ask you to consider joining this worthy association here at Mother Seton Parish. For more information, contact John Bauhs, 301-944-0451 for more information.

The Giving Tree: Each year, the Sodality works with Social Concerns to coordinate the collection of gifts for the needy in Montgomery County. The Giving Tree containing more than 1,000 cards with gift suggestions will go up in the church in November. Parishioners are asked to return the gifts the 2nd weekend of December. The Sodality also collects gifts for the retired Sisters of Charity in Emmitsburg. The Sodality welcomes all members of the Parish to join us as we celebrate Christmas with the Sisters the weekend before Christmas. For more information on the Sodality, please contact the Prefect, Christine Maselko, at 301-330-2208.

Alternative Christmas:  Each year, this program gives us an opportunity to reclaim the true meaning of Christmas. Instead of spending time and too much money buying things for loved ones who already have everything, we can give gifts of sharing to those Who have little or nothing in honor of our loved ones. We can find the Christ child in those around us who are in need and can celebrate His birth by supporting our local service agencies in their mission of comfort and healing.

Community Volunteer Opportunities:

The Lord's Table Soup Kitchen: Our volunteers prepare and serve a three-course meal to the needy in out community on the fourth Thursday of each month, September through May.

Germantown HELP: Is our emergency food organization, which also provides assistance with prescriptions and diapers to local residents on an as-needed basis. 

Meals on Wheels: Volunteers serve the homebound by bringing them nutritious prepared meals Monday through Friday. 

To volunteer, please email Toni Woods, Social Concerns Coordinator, or call 301-924-3838 x204.on's Alternative Christmas program gives

Be Messengers of God's Love

Let there be no pride or vanity in our work. It is God's work, and the poor are his poor. Let us place ourselves completely under the influence of Jesus, so that he may think through our spirit and work through our hands. -Blessed Teresa of Calcutta
