Learn about the Faith as a Family
Mother Seton parish has a subscription to FORMED.ORG.  This is an excellent resource for education in the Catholic faith!  At this site, you will find streaming videos, movies, audio talks, and e-books all available.

Resources include the popular Catholicism Series videos by Bishop Robert Barron, and excellent movies on Catholic saints for family viewing!! To start, simply create a login credential (user name and password) using our parish code GVWPTX.

Our Mission
It is our hope that as the children come to know Christ, they will begin to appreciate more fully the Catholic Faith as well as develop an ongoing and lasting relationship with Christ.

We maintain that parents/guardians are their children's primary instructors of faith. We consider our role, working with your children, a true privilege.

Our goal is to allow the encounter with Christ to happen through an understanding of our Catholic Faith. Scripture and Doctrine provide the basis of our faith that is lived out through family participation in sacrament, liturgy, and apostolic action.

The following objectives will enable all of us to make our goal a reality:

-The School of Religion personnel are supporters and enablers to parents in their responsibility of being the primary eductors for their children.

-The School of Religion will strive to incorporate Gospel values in the daily lives of our children.

-The School of Religion will assist parents in the sacramental preparation of children.

First Reconciliation and First Eucharist:  Children are prepared by their parents and the Religious Education staff for the reception of the Sacraments of Reconciliation and First Eucharist. Preparation for the sacraments is a two-year program, beginning in first grade.

Confirmation:  Preparation for Confirmation is a two-year process beginning in the 7th grade.  Students are expected to complete Community Ministry Projects, attend a retreat each of the two years, while continuing their faith journey.

Introduction to Sacraments Class ("ITS"):  A make-up class put together for children in Grades 3 - 5 (ITS A) and Grades 6 - 10 (ITS B) who, for whatever reason, have not as yet received the sacraments of Baptism, Reconciliation and Eucharist by the third grade.

Prayer of Jesus

Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation. But deliver us from evil. Amen.
