Benedictine Approach to Prayer and Spirituality

Abbot Austin G. Murphy
Tuesday, October 23 - 7:00 p.m. in the Great Hall

What can a Benedictine monk possibly teach me about how to live and work in the real world? Twenty-first-century business seems a far cry from a sixth-century hermitage.  But surprisingly, several principles of Benedict's life and work speak well to the modern world. For example:

  • Every successful business begins with a strong foundation.
  • People are your most valuable resource.
  • Treat all of your material resources as gifts from God.
  • Transform yourself if you want to transform your workplace.

Abbott Austin will be with us on Tuesday evening at 7:00 p.m. in the Great Hall, October 23 to share with us his thoughts of Benedictine prayer and spirituality, as it relates to the Universal Call to Holiness. Who knows, you might pick up something useful?

Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick

Saturday, October 27- 5:00 pm 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.

All Saints

(Holy Day of Obligation)
Thursday, November 1
8:15am and 7:00pm Masses

All Souls Novena of Masses

November is the month in which we traditionally remember all of those who have died, our family and friends who have gone before us. We especially remember them on the Feast of All Souls on November 2. This year we will be celebrating a Novena of Masses (9 in all) for all of your Beloved Deceased Family and Friends.  All Souls envelopes were included in your envelope packet and will also be available at the Welcome Desk or outside the maintenance office. Please take a few minutes to list the names of everyone you would like remembered, and place it in the collection basket. Those envelopes will be placed on the Altar for each of the Nine Masses of our Novena.  Whether or not you choose to include a stipend in the envelope is your choice, it is not required. But we do want to include all the names in the Mass intentions. The dates for the Novena Masses will be found in the Bulletin, starting on November 2, the Feast of All Souls.

All Souls Day Memorial Mass

They are also in the hearts and minds of those who loved and cared for them.  Perhaps your loss was some time ago. Maybe it was very recent.  If you had to travel away from the community to the funeral of a loved one, coming home again might have left you with a feeling of incompleteness.  A Memorial Mass will be offered on the Feast of All Souls on Friday, November 2 at 7:00 pm for all of the deceased family members of our faith community of St. Elizabeth Seton Parish.  We hope you can join us and look forward to your presence as we remember and pray for your loved ones.

Saturday Night at the Movies

November 10 at 6:30 p.m. in the Great Hall

Archbishop Oscar Romero was gunned down during Mass in a hospital chapel March 24, 1980, by a right-wing death squad.  His death is considered by the Catholic Church to have been in odium fidei, meaning in hatred of the faith. Archbishop Romero was beatified in San Salvador on May 23, 2015 and canonized by Pope Francis on October 14, 2018. Enjoy a great film, while learning more about Saint Oscar Romero, El Salvador’s first Saint!
