Garden Club

The SES Garden Club invites parishioners of all ages to join in keeping the garden areas of our parish looking glorious throughout the year, from spring through fall. We maintain the Statue Entrance Garden, the front two Islands, both Sidewalk areas, the Slope from the west entrance to the patio and, of course, the Butterfly Garden.  It will soon be time to begin weeding dandelions and thistle from these areas, as well as maintaining the defined edges. We typically meet on Saturday mornings from 8-10am, but weekdays and evenings are a possibility too. Please consider making time for enjoying God’s green earth and enhancing the outdoor beauty of our own church. Contact Connie Steinhoff at630-853-3201 or steinhoff.connie3@gmail.com.

Father’s Day Novena of Masses

We will be celebrating a Novena of Masses (Nine Masses) at St. Elizabeth Seton beginning on Father’s Day to be offered for all the Men, living and deceased who have touched us in some way, and whom we want to remember with a series of Masses. For those who have lost Fathers and Grandfathers, it is especially fitting to remember them in this fashion since we cannot each have a Mass intention on Father’s Day and the week following.  Please be thinking of the names you would want included on the altar for those Masses. This is the same type of Novena of Masses we did for Mother’s Day. But this time we remember those men both living and deceased. Please be prepared to give us the names of those men from your lives whom you would like remembered.

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 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!
