Reminder about Mass Reservations

  • 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!

Volunteers Needed for Christmas Masses!

Please consider joining one of these teams – it is crucial to have enough volunteers to continue having Mass. Our volunteer team will schedule training prior to Christmas for those who need training or a refresher to prepare for our Masses. 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.

 

SHARE CHRISTMAS IS LIVE! 

GO ONLINE TO SELECT REQUESTS AND PURCHASE GIFT CARDS.
VISIT https://kofc10025.org and click on the
Share Christmas Shop-SES Cards tab.

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!  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.  Mail your donation to the Parish Office or put your check in the collection basket at Mass - just write “Share Christmas” in the memo section! The website will be open through December 13.  Have questions?  Ask an elf!  Email SESShareChristmas@gmail.com

Christmas Mass Schedule

Our Christmas Masses will not be able to accommodate our normal crowds as we will not be able to have a Mass in the Great Hall this year.  To allow for additional attendance, we have added an extra Mass for both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.  Our Christmas schedule is as follows:

Christmas Eve - Thursday, December 24 - 3:00pm, 5:00pm, 7:00pm and 10:00pm
Christmas Day - Friday, December 25 - 10:00am and 11:30am

An online interactive Prayer Service and a livestream of the 7:00pm Christmas Eve Mass will be available to view on www.sespastor.org. 

Mass reservations must be made through Sign-up Genius. Reservations for registered parishioners can be made beginning at 8:00am on Monday, December 14 through Thursday, December 17 using the Access Code that will be provided in the letter sent to your home within the next two weeks.  Sign-up will then be open to the public (without Access Code) at 8:00am Friday, December 18 until Noon on Monday, December 21.  We ask that you only reserve the number of seats needed so seating is available for as many as possible.  We will not be able to accommodate walk-ins as we expect each Mass to be at capacity.

The health of our parishioners remains our first priority.  Please remember these Diocesan guidelines:

  • The dispensation from the obligation to attend Mass on Saturday/Sunday and Holy Days of Obligation is extended indefinitely.  You are not required to attend Mass at this time.
  • If you are fearful or have any reluctance to return to Mass at this time, you should not do so. 
  • Those most susceptible to contracting COVID-19 by virtue of age, medical condition or other vulnerability should not attend the in-person Mass.
  • Masks and social distancing guidelines will be followed. 

Christmas Mass times are subject to change based on directives from the IDPH and
Diocese of Joliet. Please check the website for updates.

PADS (Public Action to Deliver Shelter)

In normal times, St. Elizabeth Seton would host the DuPage Pads homeless overnight shelter on the first Thursday of the month.  Due to COVID-19, DuPagePads is no longer able to offer overnight sheltering for guests. Instead DuPagePads is now housing up to 60 guests at local hotels. DuPage Pads has requested that volunteer groups (such as St. Elizabeth Seton) provide and deliver meals to these hotel guests. Due to public health restrictions, the only meals allowed are either from restaurants or frozen prepared dinner meals from grocery stores. We will be purchasing meals and distributing to guest hotel rooms one day in each of the months of November and December.  We are asking for donations to assist with purchasing these meals.  We will be providing up to 60 meals.  A $7 donation will serve one person, $35 donation will serve a family of 5. To donate, please access the following  link: https://sesnaperville.churchgiving.com/PADS. You can also donate to PADS by mailing donations to the Parish Center or putting it in the Collection Basket and designating for PADS in the Memo line on the check.

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!
