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

    SECOND SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME

    JANUARY 23, 2017

    THIS WEEK'S FOCUS: FACTIONS LEAD TO FRACTIONS

    There is no denying that the world, our society, our Church, are all in a state of factionalism. For Christians, fiercely belonging to a faction often means that we can only share a fraction of the Gospel. [Please click the image to download this week's bulletin.] Looking for a past bulletin?
