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. Envelopes for those names will be in the pews for your intentions. 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.

Greeter Training

The Greeter Ministry needs you.  Greeters welcome the congregation as they enter church and we help things run smoothly before, during and after mass.  Most greeters volunteer at one or two masses a month and find it to be a satisfying way to contribute to the parish.  If you’re interested, please plan to come to our New Greeter Training on Saturday, June 10 from 9:00 a.m. to 10:15 a.m.  No need to RSVP.  If you have questions, contact Bob Ross at 357-0663 or shariandbob@aol.com  

New Lector Training

Proclaiming the Word of God at Mass is a wonderful privilege! For those interested in becoming a lector, we will conduct new lector training on Saturday, June 10 at 10:30 a.m. in the main worship space at SES. Everyone will have the opportunity to practice a short reading selection from the ambo. We expect training to last just over an hour. To confirm your attendance or for more information, contact Jon Harmon at (630) 815-6586 or jharmon@heidrick.com

Blood Drive

On the Saturday of Father's Day weekend, make a point to change someone’s life!  Donate blood on June 17 and you will be changing - and perhaps saving – the lives of at least 3 people!  Look for sign-up sheet after masses at the SHOP SES table on June 4, sign up for an appointment at HeartlandBC.org, by emailing SESBloodDrives@gmail.com, or by calling Greg at 357.3703. Walk-ins also accepted. All donors will also receive a full breakfast.

Summer Bible Study – Psalms, Part 1

The Book of the Psalms is a unique collection of the song-prayers of Israel. To study Psalms is to study prayer, ultimately to enter into prayer. This study will challenge participants to reflect on their own prayer and life experiences. We will study twenty-eight Psalms in this seven week study.  We will be using the Little Rock Scripture Study Set entitled Psalms I Study Set (available at littlerockscripture.org or 1-800-858-5434 for $15). This study has six sessions, incorporating 6 lessons. Be ready to discuss the first lesson on the first day of class. The Study Set includes a Study Guide by Catherine Upchurch, and a commentary, Psalms for All Seasons, by John F. Craghan.  The study will start on Tuesday, June 20 and will finish on Tuesday, August 1 (we will not meet on July 4). There will be a morning session that starts a 9 AM and an evening session that starts at 7:30 PM. Both sessions will cover the same material. This study will be facilitated by Linda Hill, a graduate of the Biblical Institute of the Diocese of Joliet. Please contact Linda Hill at smandlsh@sbcglobal.net or 630-527-9045 if you have any questions.

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.
