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

    FIFTEENTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME

    JULY 16, 2017

    THIS WEEK'S FOCUS: IMAGINE THAT

    Jesus taught in parables, often from the natural world. Our sacraments use things that
    come to us from the natural realm, too. All can lead us to imagine God’s reign among us.
