Fish Fry Food
We were able to host three Fish Fry events this past Spring, but had to cancel the last three due to COVID-19. We kept hoping we might have another event over the summer or in the Fall, but that is not to be. We will be selling the unused food by the end of the month. Please click the link below to view pricing and pick-up information.

September - December Ministry Schedule
Ministers - thank you for continuing your ministries through the COVID-19 era. The schedule below is an abbreviated version of what you are typically used to receiving. We are only scheduling Greeters, Lectors, Altar Linens and Homebound ministries. As we accommodate new procedures and expectations in our ministries, please know we appreciate YOU!
Welcome! It is time to start thinking about our Children's Faith Formation program (PREP) here at St. Elizabeth. This has certainly been a strange year, but we would like to plan for the coming year and ways we can support you in your promise to raise your child in the faith.
We ask that you fill this out and either drop it off at the office or send it to [email protected] We are in the planning stages of how we will accomplish this come Fall, depending on what happens in Ohio with COVID-19 but will keep you apprised. Please fill out your form and return it with payment no later than August 1, 2020. Thank you and know we are looking forward to working with our families!

If you are unable to receive the Precious Body and Blood of Christ in person, we ask that you make an Act of Spiritual Communion by reciting the following after the priest receives communion:
"My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love you above all things, and I desire to receive you into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You."
