Knights of Columbus Rosary in May
We invite you to join with your K of C members as we pray the Rosary In May. We will be praying at 7pm on Mondays: May 1, 8, 15, & 22. We welcome all in this month of Mary.
Mother’s Day Novena of Masses
We will be celebrating a Novena of Masses (Nine Masses) at St. Elizabeth Seton beginning on Mother’s Day to be offered for all the Women, living and dead who have touched us in some way, and whom we want to remember with a series of Masses. For those who have lost Mothers and Grandmothers, it is especially fitting to remember them in this fashion since we cannot each have a Mass intention on Mother’s Day and the week following. Please be thinking of the names you would want included on the altar for those Masses.
Pastoral Care Minister Training For Edward Hospital
Monday, May 15 at 7:30pm in the Church Lower Level
“For I was… ill and you cared for me.” Pastoral Care Ministers visit Catholics who are in a healthcare facility or who are homebound. They offer compassion, a listening presence, prayer and the Eucharist. Pastoral Care Ministers at Edward Hospital bring Holy Communion to the Catholic patients on Wednesdays, on a rotating basis, with each minister visiting once every five to six weeks. Those interested in joining this ministry must be Confirmed Catholics aged 18 or older. Our next training session will be on Monday, May 15 at 7:30pm in the lower level of the Church. If you would like more information about the Pastoral Care Ministry or if you are planning on attending the training session, please contact Linda Hill at (630) 527-9045 or email@example.com

St. Vincent de Paul Collection Truck - May 20 & 21
Spring has finally arrived and with the warmer weather, we’re all inclined to clean up or clean out! As you are organizing and cleaning those closets, basements, crawl spaces, and garages, please keep St. Vincent de Paul in mind as we will have a truck right here at our parish to accept usable items you wish to donate and help the less fortunate.
