Reminder about Mass Reservations

  • Make your reservations through Sign-up Genius. This helps our Greeters during the check-in process and allows for us to do contact tracing in the event an attendee notifies us of a positive COVID test.
  • Make your reservations in a timely manner – preferably at least 12 hours before the Mass start time.  The check-in sheets will not have your name listed if you sign up at the last minute.
  • Choose your seat assignment based on the number of people attending. 
  • Masses that are full on Sign-up Genius will not be able to accommodate walk-ins.
  • If you haven’t already done so, please create a login for Sign-up Genius.  This will allow you to make changes to your reservations if you need to cancel, change or correct your reservation.  Please note that putting a “0” as the quantity does not delete the reservation.
  • If you are unable to make a reservation or cancel a reservation, please call the Parish Office at 630-416-3325 or email stelizabethseton@gmail.com – we are more than happy to help!

St. Vincent de Paul Collection Truck   

The trucks are coming!  The trucks are coming!!
May 1 and 2
It’s our second no-contact clothing/small household items drive!!

St Vincent de Paul will be parking their donation trucks in our parking lot for us to fill with all that you have been setting aside for donation during the past several months. Spring is the perfect time to donate all those gently used articles of clothing and shoes which no longer fit big and little ones.

Some important changes for this drive include:

  • Only bagged, boxed or household items which fit into your vehicle may be dropped off during collection times.  *please do not leave items if no volunteers are present.
  • Please follow the designated drop-off lane and remain in your car.
  • Please open the trunk when a volunteer approaches your vehicle or have doors unlocked for volunteer.
  • Volunteers will remove the bags from your car.
  • Volunteers will place a tax receipt in trunk/car.
  • Drivers will drive away feeling so much lighter.

Again this year, more than ever, clothing is needed by many families who have suffered the effects from the Pandemic.  Thank you so much for your generous support of those in need.

Collection Hours:
Saturday, May 1 - 12:00 – 6:00 pm
Sunday, May 2 - 8:00 am – 1:00 pm

Furniture and Household Items may be dropped off at either SVdP Store:
Joliet Store – 1820 W. Jefferson St
West Chicago Store – 213 Main St
Monday – Friday: 9:00-5:00 pm

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 pull-down lever….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 at 630-231-4658 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!

    
St Vincent de Paul is here to help.
