While we are all in a time of great uncertainty, please know that the staff and residents of Mustard Seed Communities are holding you up in prayer, and reflecting on our deep gratitude for your love and support.
We are taking every precaution to keep the residents and staff healthy and safe. In the words of Fr. Garvin, "We are very encouraged by our staff around the world. They continue to demonstrate incredible dedication to those in their care." Mustard Seed continues to be a place of hope and faith as we care for more than 650 residents and provide jobs for over 500 staff worldwide. We have much to be grateful for.

Father Peter McIsaac
Father Peter McIsaac, Director of Spiritual Formation and Chair of the Committee for overseeing formation of the Brothers at St. Andrew's, shares thoughts and scripture about fear during uncertainty. We face great uncertainty of the situation in the pandemic and there is a lot of deception and ignorance that makes the situation much worse. Although our fear is at times natural, the kind of fear that creates ignorance and violence does not come from God—it is a different kind of fear and it does not lead us to true peace.
