VBS Volunteers Needed for VBS 2023

Mother Seton is gearing up for another amazing year of VBS, June 26 — June 30, 2023. But it wouldn’t be possible without our incredible volunteers. Registration is now open for our 2023 VBS Volunteers.

Its always the volunteers that makes the child’s experience so amazing. They remember the leader who danced a silly dance with them or helped string together their craft or sat with them during snack time to talk about their favorite Super Hero. We are looking for these adults and teens who would love to spend the week sharing the Good News with our young parishioners. Don’t worry we will show you what to do. Contact Mary Beth at DRE@mothersetonparish.org for any questions or how to get involved.

Thank you all the members of the Africa Union 55 committee who worked so long and hard on bringing about the glorious day we had last weekend. Their celebration was for all of us. It was an explosion of grace, of the signs of Christ in our midst. It inspires all of us to sing and dance because of the goodness of God. Thank you all who participated in sharing your faith with us. Let’s work together so that we can celebrate more the gifts of our parishioners, wherever they come from, whatever is their tradition, the human glory of Christ.
