We do not plan on having sign ups at this time. However we will plan on overflow crowds for 4pm, 6pm and possibly Christmas Day at 12:30pm in the Parish. We suggest that you try to avoid the most popular masses, seating is limited to 200 per mass in church. 60 in the Parish Center. Christmas Day is an octave – for 8 days we celebrate the Nativity of Our Lord. Consider opting to come during that week instead of Christmas Eve/Day. 

Financial Report Fiscal Year 2020

Dear Mother Seton Parish,

Each year at this time, we share with you our financial report. Included here is a brief letter from me and the report. 
I thank my staff and all who help us in being a thriving community of faith during these times. I am so blessed to be here with Fr. Lou, Fr. Phil, our deacons and wonderful staff. I love you my parishioners deeply. 
Thank you for the witness you give me each day. Pray for me and our parish, that we may use wisely the gifts God has given us. 

God bless you,
Fr. Lee

Upcoming Events

We are very excited to be offering several virtual/in person events and opportunities at Mother Seton. Click here for more information.


We’ve started a “deacon’s corner,” a place where deacons
can reflect on the readings of the day, the saint of the day,
an event, or a prayer. Also, this will be the place to offer
encouragement to fellow parishioners during the
pandemic. The deacons have been instructed to keep it
short, that is, four to eight sentences. The difficulty is not
finding something to say — our faith is so rich and deep
that there is always something to say — the difficulty is to
say something meaningful but at the same time keep it



Mother Seton Parish needs your support now more than ever!  Join the parishioners who are using Faith Direct for automated giving to Mother Seton.  Faith Direct offers a safe and secure way to donate to our parish in this time of uncertainty.  There is no cost to you, and the program provides a great benefit to our parish.  Sign up today by visiting or text “Enroll” to 301-281-4377.
