Perpetual Adoration Chapel

Big changes coming soon on October 1st !!!!

All parishioners are encouraged to return to the Adoration Chapel for private prayer. Our hours remain the same with the Chapel open from 6:00 am -10:00 pm. One change is that there will be no sign-up reservation required through Sign Up Genius. No code will be necessary Sunday – Saturday from 8:00 am - 5:00 pm. Code is to be used before or after these hours to gain entrance. Questions? Please contact pjpchapel@gmail.com or call 630.335.7704.  There is a HUGE need for committed adorers to operate our Chapel! The closest thing to heaven on earth – that is what Mother Teresa said of visiting Jesus in Adoration. You may experience this heaven on earth in our John Paul II Eucharistic Adoration Chapel SEVEN Days a Week!

Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick

Saturday, October 8 - 5:00pm Mass

As an opportunity for additional grace and healing, the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick is offered for those who suffer from a chronic ailment, those who are anticipating a hospital stay, and those who are acutely ill.  There are many examples in the Gospels where Jesus extended his hands and prayed over those who came to him sick in body or mind.  In the Acts of the Apostles we see that the first Christian communities also were called upon to pray over individuals who were in need of healing.  This Sacrament is offered during Mass so that the whole Community present can pray with the Priest for those who come forward.  Come and receive the invitation of grace and find peace in the midst of your pain and suffering.  For additional information please contact Parish Center at (630) 416-3325.

Loaves & Fishes Ministry Needs Your Help!

Donations have not recovered to the level seen before the pandemic.  For a parish with about 2,000 families there should be far more food donated each week. If just 10% of the families attending weekend Mass brought one canned good or one package of dry food, the donation cart on the lower level would be overflowing. We can do better. It is up to you.

Undy Sunday

Earth Care is once again collecting new underwear for Catholic Charities the weekend of October 15/16.  Underwear is the last thing people with limited financial resources will buy.  So they are so appreciative when we can supply these needed necessities.  There will be a box in the Narthex as well as a box in the lower level to deposit diapers, and men, women and childrens underwear.  Thank you in advance for your generous donation.

The NATIONAL EUCHARISTIC REVIVAL

“My Flesh for The Life of The World”

The National Eucharistic Revival began on the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ, June 19. On this day, the Catholic Church in the United States began the three year National Eucharistic Revival. The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has established a website for helping to distribute information about the Eucharistic Revival. On this website, you can find information about various Eucharistic talks and written documents. More importantly you can sign up for a weekly Heart of the Revival Newsletter which will send you updates and inspirational materials. You can also sign up to be a Prayer Partner. We encourage you to visit:  www.eucharisticrevival.org which will help you to get involved in the National Eucharistic Revival (English and Spanish).

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!

SES/St. Vincent de Paul

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!
