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.

    SEVENTH SUNDAY OF EASTER

    MAY 28, 2017

    THIS WEEK'S FOCUS: NECK STRAIN

    Just like sitting in the front row at the movie theater, standing in place and looking
