Fulfilled Bible Study

Fulfilled: Uncovering the Biblical Foundations (Part Two)

Have you ever been unable to explain why Catholics believe what they do? Have you ever wondered why the Old Testament sounds so different from the New Testament? God began building a plan and laying a foundation for the beautiful traditions of the Catholic Faith in the Old Testament. It was fulfilled by Jesus in the New Testament. 

Fulfilled: Uncovering the Biblical Foundations of Catholicism
 is an apologetic approach to sharing the Catholic Faith using the Old Testament tabernacle as a blueprint for God’s plan. While designed as a faith sharing Bible study, participants will also gain an apologetic understanding of some of the most questioned Catholic teachings. Fulfilled will reignite your love of scripture and help you share and defend the Catholic faith with the Word of God.

Child Protection Policy

Protecting our young people is a top priority here at Mother Seton. We adhere to the guidelines set forth by the Archdiocese of Washington DC.

All volunteers and employees in the Diocese of Washington who have “significant contact with children” are required to complete the diocesan Child Protection Program, known as “Virtus.”

The How to Being Compliant with the Child Protection Policy

Step 1: (FOR NEW VOLUNTEERS)            

Open and create a Virtus account.

This can be done at www.Virtus.org.

Complete appropriate application form

Step 2:

Fill out an application with the parish Child Protection Coordinator

  • You need two forms of identification – one photo id- only certain ID is acceptable. ACCEPTABLE FORMS OF IDENTIFICATION
  • Complete the application at your coordinator’s site.

Step 3:

Sign up for a Virtus Safe Environment training session.

  • Registration is done online while you are creating your virtus account.
  • Safe environment training class must be completed within 60 days of fingerprinting.

Step 4:            Fingerprinting for Volunteers who have ONLY done electronic background check & NEW Volunteers

  • Coordinators will provide a document with the ADW fingerprinting authorization number.
  • Bring authorization form for fingerprinting to one of the fingerprinting locations along with two forms of identification.

If you have NEVER been fingerprinted and are already VIRTUS certified you MUST be fingerprinted no later then January 30,2020. You will no longer be in compliance and unable to volunteer with children if this isn’t completed.


  • Please take the authorization form to a police station that does digital prints. Suggested that you call first to make sure someone is there to do them. There will be a fee but uncertain what that is.
