fourteenTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME

JULY 5, 2020

THIS SUNDAY'S FOCUS:

Heavenly Father,  

     Like the Israelites of old, our ancestors in the faith, our country has sturggled long and hard to be free and to keep its freedom as a nation. It too has met with success and failure to achiee its goals. Let me take this holiday celebration to ponder the strengths and weaknesses of my country. Make me resoe always to do my part to kep it strong and strive constantly to eliminate its weaknesses. Teach me to meditate on the teachings of your Son who brought a message of peace and freedom and instructed us to live as brothers and sisters. His message took the form in the vision of our founders as they fashioned a nation where people might live as one. May this message live on in our midst as a task for people today and a promise fo tomorrow. Thank you for your past blessing and for that, with your help, we will achieve. AMEN.

  • SUNDAY MASS SONG SELECTIONS

    “When you sing, you pray twice…"

         ” I was recently given a request to post the songs we are singing at our recorded masses each week so parishioners can look up the lyrics and sing along.  As we adjust to this new normal, I thought this is a great idea.  The idea of everyone joining in song at their homes is heartwarming and spiritually uplifting.  I always say the building doesn’t make us a church, but the people.  We are the church and St. Elizabeth Seton is a singing church family.  Sing on!"

  • theology on tap 2020 series

         The Archdiocese of Chicago is excited to announce the launch of a revitalized Theology on Tap for Summer 2020! This year, Theology on Tap will be completely virtual through the Chicago Theology on Tap Facebook page.

    CLICK HERE OR ON THE IMAGE TO BE CONNECTED TO THE TOT CHICAGO FACEBOOK PAGE.

         Our summer series will begin with our kickoff event, “How Individuals Change Society: The Role of the Church (of faith) in Transforming Racial Injustice”. Join us for a panel discussion with the Most Reverend Bishop Joseph N. Perry, Auxiliary Bishop in the Archdiocese of Chicago for Vicariate Six, and Ms. Tanya Woods, the Executive Director of the Westside Justice Center. These two leaders in the Black community in Chicago will discuss the history of racial justice in our country and in the Catholic Church, the issues that have led to current injustices, and our own personal responsibility to help, guided by Jesus’ example.

         Following the kickoff event, instead of asking parishes to host their own Theology on Tap series, the Archdiocese of Chicago will host a virtual series in order to keep everyone safe while still bringing our amazing community together. This series, titled “Voices on the Periphery,” will focus on listening to and amplifying the voices of those who may not have the biggest platform in our society. Each session will be open to all individual young adults, young adult groups and parishes across the archdiocese.

         In these crazy times, you are invited to join us for this never-done-before, powerful Theology on Tap series. We might not be able to gather in person, but we can still grow in faith, hope and love together.
