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.
