Take the #SetonCharityChallenge!
In honor of Mother Seton’s birthday on August 28, we created the #SetonCharityChallenge! Each day in the month of August, we encourage our friends, followers, and visitors to participate in acts of kindness, love, and charity! Mother Seton is an inspiration to so many, together let’s see what we can give back to our communities, our families and our friends! Post a sticky note with a positive message to a friend, offer to unload someone’s groceries for them, pray the rosary, donate canned goods…see the Seton Charity Challenge calendar for suggested ideas each day. Make sure to post photos of your good deeds with #SetonCharityChallenge. Each person who posts a photo on the Shrine’s Facebook page will receive a free prayer card in the mail (email your name and contact info to firstname.lastname@example.org), and be eligible to win a gift from the Seton Heritage Shop.
We are very excited to announce a new partnership with DePaul University’s Vincentian Studies Institute (V.S.I). Beginning July 1, The Seton Heritage Shop, will manage V.S.I’s Vincentian Heritage Bookstore and begin to offer more than 120 items dedicated to Saint Vincent de Paul.

Let the footsteps of the past create a better understanding of today’s journey…
