SHARE CHRISTMAS 

In lieu of our traditional tables of tags, and in partnership with the Knights of Columbus, gift requests will be online to allow selection of gift requests from your own home or mobile device.  Gift requests are selections of gift cards available through Shop SES.  Its quick, easy, secure, its no-contact and it helps our parish! VISIT https://kofc10025.org and click on the Share Christmas Shop SES Cards tab.  The website will be open starting November 13 running through December 5.  Not online?  You can still purchase gift cards through the usual processes for Shop SES.  Simply indicate when you email or call that the purchase is to be put towards Share Christmas.  The elves (socially distanced, of course) will be able to match the card with a request and make someone’s day. Not familiar with Shop SES, but still want to donate?  We have that covered!  You can certainly write a check to donate to the purchase of a gift card if you’re not certain what is needed. Have questions?  Ask an elf!  Email SESShareChristmas@gmail.com

Sign up for an appointment at  https://www.versiti.org/ or by or emailing SESBloodDrives@gmail.com. Walk-ins are also accepted, but scheduled appointments are appreciated.

Simbang Gabi

"Simbang Gabi" (Advent Evening Mass) a Filipino tradition of over 400 years, is a festive Eucharistic Celebration held at dawn on the nine days before Christmas. This novena is an expression of joyful gratitude and waiting for the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ. Here in our diocese, we hold the masses in the evenings from Dec. 14 thru Dec. 22.  The third of the nine evenings of “Simbang Gabi“ has been set for St. Elizabeth Seton Church on Thursday, December 16 at 7:30pm. (Due to pandemic restrictions, there will be NO reception this year.)

EARTH CARE

As stewards of this world, we strive to protect God's creation; one of the ways we do this is by monitoring our purchases, taking care to choose items that cause the least harm and result in the most good. To help us find such products, we've partnered with SERRV, an organization that fights global poverty through fair and ethical trade, encourages sustainable practices, and supports community since 1949. We've created a custom link for our parish; you'll know you've reached the right site if you see an orange banner across the top with the message: “20% of your order today will be donated to SERRV International.” When you buy through SERRV, your purchase directly helps the artisan plus continues the good work of SERRV. Our custom link for St. Elizabeth Seton is: serrv.org?a=SESNaper. Please take some time, and consider shopping through it!

Equal Exchange Fair Trade Coffee and Candy Sale

Earth Care Environment ministry will be selling Equal Exchange Fair Trade Coffee and Candy on the second Sunday of almost each month in the lower level next to the Knights gift card sale. Equal Exchange farmers use their deep knowledge to restore and preserve the planet.  Farmers use shade farming, preserve local river water quality, improve the soil and prevent erosion.  They grow organic without the use of toxic and persistent pesticides.

SES/St. Vincent de Paul Update

Have you noticed a new blue “box” on the East side of our SES Campus?  It may look like an over-sized mailbox but in fact, it’s our new-to-the-parish SVDP Dropbox where you may deposit those bags of clothing you’ve been saving for the Clothing Drive Trucks. Just bring those closed bags and deposit inside the levered opening….it’s that easy! Just a couple of etiquette rules to keep in mind:

  • Any donation must be able to fit into the levered opening. Nothing may be left outside or on top of the dropbox.
  • No large furniture may be brought to the dropbox site – please call SVdP to arrange a pickup from your garage. 
  • If the box is full, please save until the following week, since the dropbox will be emptied weekly.
  • No tax receipts will be available at the dropbox, but you may list your donatables and add to the receipt during the truck drives.

Questions? Please email: jeanekloepper@gmail.com
Thanks so much for the support you’ve always shown to SVDP!!

Email Phishing

PLEASE IGNORE any email messages from Father Scott Huggins or any of the deacons or staff from St. Elizabeth Seton that are asking for a favor, asking you to call a number or asking you to buy gift certificates.  These emails are scams! We have been notified that some of our parishioners are receiving these emails and want to assure all of you that no one from St. Elizabeth Seton is sending them directly. Please do not respond or call the number within the email.

Help Us Update Our Records!

If you have an adult child who no longer attends St. Elizabeth Seton because they are married or have moved from your home, please let us know so we can update your family records.  It is important for us to maintain accurate membership counts for our census report to the Diocese.  Please reply to this email, send an email to stelizabethseton@gmail.com or contact the Parish Office at 630-416-3325 to let us know!

Has Your Phone Number Changed?

Many households are disconnecting their landlines and using their cell phones as their primary form of contact.  In order to keep our database and phone directory up to date, we need to know if your contact information has changed. If you no longer have a landline, do you want your cell phone number to be used as the primary contact?  Do you wanted it published in the annual phone directory? Please contact the Parish Office at 630-416-3325 or email stelizabethseton@gmail.com to let us know!
