 Blessing of the Animals

On Sunday, October 3 at 1:00 P.M. we will celebrate a Blessing of the Animals in the East “Barking Lot” of St. Elizabeth Seton. We all love our pets and this is a wonderful opportunity for the parish community of St. Elizabeth Seton to get together with our fellow animal lovers and have God’s blessings bestowed upon our cherished pets. Bring any creature that woofs, meows, chirps, or squeaks!  Please keep your animals in control at all times by either having them on a leash or holding them in your arms.  Some may want to bring their pets in convenient pet carriers.  Also, please bring clean up materials in case of any accidents. In the event of inclement weather, the blessing will be cancelled.

SHOP-SES

Cards can be ordered by e-mail at SHOP-SES2011@Comcast.net or by calling the parish office (630) 416 -3325. Cards can then be picked up at the parish office during regular office hours. Cards will be available on the weekend of the second Sunday of the month before and after the 5:00, 8:30 & 10:00 Masses and before the 11:30 Mass. In October that is the weekend of October 9-10. Our lists of immediately available cards and cards that can be special ordered are on the parish website. Check the parish website https://www.sesnaperville.org under the ABOUT US tab and SHOP-SES.

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!

Equal Exchange Fair Trade Coffee and Candy Sale

Earth Care Environment ministry will be selling Equal Exchange Fair Trade Coffee and Candy on the second Sunday of almost each month in the lower level next to the Knights gift card sale. Equal Exchange farmers use their deep knowledge to restore and preserve the planet.  Farmers use shade farming, preserve local river water quality, improve the soil and prevent erosion.  They grow organic without the use of toxic and persistent pesticides.

Earth Care Ministry - Used Book Sale

So many of us have lots of books sitting on shelves that we have read, we are planning to read some day, or they just didn’t live up to our expectations. There are many people who would just love to read those very books.  And there are other peoples’ books YOU would love to own.  It’s time to recycle books.  And the Earth Care Ministry is going to help you out!  We will be accepting books for the resale on Friday, October 15 from 3:00 to 7:00pm  in the lower level of SES church.  NO TEXTBOOKS PLEASE!!!  We will also accept puzzles in good condition. Saturday, October 16 from 9:00am to 6:00pm and Sunday, October 17 from 8:00am to 1:00pm will be the BIGGEST BOOK RESALE AROUND.  We will ask $1.00 for hard covers and 50 cents for paper backs, 50 cents for puzzles.

Undy Sunday 2021

St. Elizabeth Seton is helping Catholic Charities, Diocese of Joliet and the individuals and families they serve by collecting NEW underwear, undershirts, socks, and diapers for children and adults living in low-income households. Collection will be held on October 16/17, in the lower level of the narthex at SES. All donations will be gratefully accepted, but we are focusing on the following specific items this year: Girls sz. 8 underwear, women’s XXL sports bras, men’s thermal long underwear, tops and bottoms. If you’d prefer to send a monetary donation, please mail it to:  Catholic Charities, Diocese of Joliet/Undy Sunday - 16555 Weber Road; Crest Hill, Il 60403. For more information about Undy Sunday, please email Maggie Snow at msnow@cc-doj.org. Thank you for making a difference in the lives of the poor and vulnerable in our community!

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!
