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.

  • JUBILEE YEAR OF MERCY

    December 8, 2015-November 26, 2016

    A Jubilee year is a special year celebrated by the church to receive blessing and pardon from God and remission of sins. Pope Francis has called on Catholics around the world to use the ongoing Jubilee year of mercy to “open wide” the doors of their hearts to forgive others and to work against social exclusion, even of those that may have caused them bother or upset. The Archdiocese of Chicago has resources to help you celebrate the Year of Mercy: Mercy Moment; weekly Mercy Mondays; a Jubilee Year of Mercy tweet site [#jubileemercy], as well as Vatican resources. In addition, you will find a listing of pilgrimage church sites selected by Archbishop Cupich for the Year of Mercy. Visit www.jubileemercy.org.
