  • Restored organ connects parish to its roots of faith
    In 1879, a Steer & Turner tracker organ traveled by train from Westfield, Massachusetts, down the East Coast. At Union Station, it was loaded onto a horse and buggy, and installed at Immaculate Conception Parish in the Shaw neighborhood of Washington. For nearly 140 years, the instrument provided soul-lifting music during thousands of Sunday liturgies, weddings, and funerals. 
  • Cathedral of St. Matthew, ‘landmark of faith in nation’s capital,’ celebrates 175th year
    Almost six weeks after Pope Francis prayed at the Cathedral of St. Matthew the Apostle in Washington, Cardinal Donald Wuerl celebrated a Mass of Thanksgiving celebrating the cathedral’s 175th anniversary. At the Nov. 1 Mass, he encouraged the cathedral’s parishioners and guests to emulate the lives of the saints. 
  • New cemetery blessed at Jesus the Good Shepherd Parish in Owings

  • A warm embrace for Pope Francis at door of St. Matthew’s Cathedral
    As Msgr. W. Ronald Jameson stood at the threshold of the Cathedral of St. Matthew the Apostle, Washington, before noon on Sept. 23 waiting to greet Pope Francis for a midday prayer service with the nation’s bishops, he looked out onto Rhode Island Avenue, N.W., and could see nearby office workers watching at their windows hoping to catch a glimpse of the vicar of Christ 
  • Open the Door of Mercy
    On the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception, December 8, 2015, the Church will begin an Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy. It is fitting that this event takes place on the 50th anniversary of the closing of the Second Vatican Council. 
  • Seton High School’s new pharmacy program helps prepare girls for careers in that field
    Under the leadership of newly hired pharmacy teacher Barbara McHenry, 12th graders will learn basics of pharmacology, including printing labels and counting candy into pill bottles for practice. But as one member of Seton’s pharmacy advisory board explained to Sister Ellen Marie Hagar, a Daughter of Charity who serves as the school’s president, the most important aspect of the pharmacy profession is not technical know-how, but strong character. 
  • Celebrate mercy this Advent, to start the Year of Mercy
    This Advent marks the start of a special year in the life of our Church: the Jubilee Year of Mercy. Pope Francis has called for a Holy Year “dedicated to living out in our daily lives the mercy which the father constantly extends to all of us” (Misericordiae Vultus, 25). Advent is a beautiful time to start this Year of Mercy together because it is a season of reflection and preparation.
