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

    TWENTY EIGHTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME

    OCTOBER 14, 2018

    THIS WEEK'S FOCUS: BEYOND THE BASICS

    To observe the mere basics of our faith, to do the bare minimum, is a kind of indifference to God’s presence in our lives. Our quest must be God’s — to live and love more extravagantly, more fully.
