Mass at St. Elizabeth Seton

Saturday:  5:00pm
Sunday:  8:30am ~ 10:00am ~ 11:30am

We have been contacted by concerned parishioners about people not wearing their masks during the entire Mass or not wearing them properly.  For everyone’s health and safety, please keep your mask on at all times except when removing it to consume the Eucharist.  Masks must cover your mouth and nose.  The State of Illinois and Diocese of Joliet mandate wearing masks – everyone must follow these directives so we can continue to celebrate Mass.

Reminder about Mass Reservations

Weekend Masses resumed over two months ago and we want to thank everyone for their patience and understanding while adjusting to all the changes. A HUGE thank you to our wonderful volunteers! Without Greeters to check people in, Ushers to direct people to and from their seats, and the Clean-up crew to ensure everything is sanitized, it would not have been possible for everyone to attend Mass! 

We are aware of a few issues regarding weekend Mass reservations and would appreciate everyone’s cooperation with the following:

  • Reservations must be made through Sign-up Genius.  We have been able to accommodate most walk-ins, but it causes delays in the check-in process and seat assignments.  We have a limit on the number of people allowed in the Church – once that number is reached, walk-ins will be turned away.
  • If you make a reservation and are unable to attend, please cancel your reservation so it frees up seats for someone else.
  • If you make a reservation and decide to go another Mass, please cancel your original reservation and make a new one.
  • If you make a duplicate reservation, please delete the one in error.  If you enter the number of people attending as “0” it does not cancel the reservation.

If you are unable to make a reservation or cancel a reservation, please call the Parish Office – we are more than happy to help!

Greeters and Clean-up Volunteers Needed!

Please consider joining one of these teams – it is crucial to have enough volunteers to continue having Mass.  You can sign-up by emailing Alicia Napoli at alicianapolises@gmail.com.

  • Greeting team: Sample duties include assisting in managing the flow of congregants as they enter the church, making sure attendees use hand sanitizer upon entering, are wearing a mask, and are reminded not to enter if ill; directing people to appropriate seating/waiting areas, etc. (Must be 18 years or older).
  • Cleaning team: Sample duties include maintaining and cleaning essential and trafficked areas of the church before and after the church has been used. Masks and gloves will be provided, if you do not have your own, in addition to approved cleaning/disinfecting supplies

In Honor of the Feast of St. Francis - Blessing of the Animals

On Sunday, October 4th at 1:00 P.M., we will celebrate a Blessing of the Animals in the East “Barking Lot” of St. Elizabeth Seton.  We all love our pets and this is a wonderful opportunity for the parish community of St. Elizabeth Seton to get together with our fellow animal lovers and have God’s blessings bestowed upon our cherished pets.   Bring any creature that woofs, meows, chirps, or squeaks!  Please keep your animals in control at all times by either having them on a leash or holding them in your arms.  Some may want to bring their pets in convenient pet carriers.  Also, please bring clean up materials in case of any accidents. Face coverings and social distancing guidelines must be followed.  In the event of inclement weather, the blessing will be cancelled.

Undy Sunday: October 2020

Did you know that new underwear and socks are the most-requested, but least-donated items at Catholic Charities? These basic items (new underwear, warm socks, a fresh diaper) are truly treasures to those who are living in poverty. St. Elizabeth Seton is supporting Catholic Charities, Diocese of Joliet and the individuals and families they serve by providing new underwear, undershirts, socks, diapers, and other basic need items for children and adults living in low-income households throughout the month of October. This year, due to COVID-19, Catholic Charities is requesting donations in either of the two following ways:

  1. Undy Sunday Amazon Wish List – Choose from a list of most-needed items and your donation will be sent directly to Catholic Charities to help those in need.   
  2. Monetary Donations to support Undy Sunday – Donations made to Undy Sunday will be used to purchase the items needed by Catholic Charities’ clients.

Please visit https://catholiccharitiesjoliet.org/undy-sunday/ to make a donation or view the Amazon Wish List. If you’d prefer to send a check directly to Catholic Charities, please mail it to: Catholic Charities, Diocese of Joliet/Undy Sunday, 16555 Weber Road, Crest Hill, IL  60403. For more information on Undy Sunday, please email Maggie Snow at msnow@cc-doj.org. Thank you for making a difference in the lives of the poor and vulnerable in our community, particularly during this difficult time.

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!
