Advent Parish Mission

Discovering the Heart of God

We welcome back to Mother Seton Parish the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal from December 9-11, 2019

The Franciscan Friars of the Renewal The Franciscans of the Renewal were founded in 1987 in response to St. John Paul II’s call for the renewal of religious life. The friars are seeking to return to the primitive inspiration of St Francis who heard the call of Jesus, “Repair my House.” They participate in Christ’s renewal of all things with an emphasis on ongoing personal, communal, and ecclesial renewal. This takes place through their life of prayer, fraternity and mission. Apostolically their life is to live with and serve the materially poor as well as to preach the Holy Gospel wherever they may be sent.

2019 Lenten Food Drive

Hunger is an ever-present reality in our community. Local food pantries are experiencing a great demand for food. To help replenish supplies, Catholic Charities and the Archdiocese of Washington together are sponsoring the Lenten Food Drive. We will distribute the bags on March 23rd – 24th and collect them the weekend of March 30th – 31st. Bags for your donations will be provided if you wish to use them. When you come to Mass that weekend, please leave your donation in the Narthex. Our collection will be donated to Germantown Help and The Lord’s Table. Please be generous with your contribution. If you wish, you may make a check out to Mother Seton with a note that it is for the food drive. Thank you for all you do to help the needy among us.
