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.

    TWENTIETH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME

    AUGUST 19, 2018

    THIS WEEK'S FOCUS: EATING VS. CRUNCHING

    The actions of eating and drinking at the Eucharist are the same as we use daily. But Eucharist calls us to a deeper, more engaged eating and drinking.
