Welcome to st. elizabeth seton CATHOLIC CHURCH!

Our Roman Catholic Parish is a very large, welcoming southwest suburban community of over 2,200 families. Despite our large size as a community, we do seek to create a small town community feel.

We seek to be a place where people know one another, form a welcoming parish family, and live out

our baptismal call to follow the Lord. Please know you are welcome to join our community.

  • THIS WEEK'S CHURCH BULLETIN

    EIGHTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME

    FEBRUARY 26, 2017

    THIS WEEK'S FOCUS: ANXIETY ATTACK

    There is a way in which our living in anxiety is a statement that we don’t trust in God. Complete trust in God doesn’t mean life won’t have difficulties, but it does mean they can be faced calmly, with faith.
