Dedication to Father Rodric J. DiPietro, Former Pastor
Father Rodric J. DiPietro passed into eternal life on August 13, 2011. Fr. Rod was a Pastor of St. Elizabeth Church from 1989 through 2001. He was very involved in the renovation of St. Elizabeth Church to its current facade, adding on to the kitchen and establishing a multi-purpose room. The Christian Community of St. Elizabeth grew under his pastoral ministry. Fr. Rod was transferred to St. Brendan the Navigator Catholic Church, 4475 Dublin Rd., Hilliard, Ohio, in 2001 as Pastor of the Church and School. He will be truly missed and was very loved by all that knew him. May the perpetual light shine on him. Rest in Peace.
In September, 2012, Joey Conkey (a member at St. Brendan's Church and grandson of a member of St. Elizabeth Church) built a Memorial Garden in tribute to Father Rod as his Eagle Scout project from Boy Scout Troop #859. Please stop and view the garden as you enter the church parking lot.
