St. Elizabeth Parish is a welcoming family of faith "Risen in Christ's love". We gather in worship to God; provide knowledge and sacraments for spiritual growth; serve the needs of others; and share the Good News for the glory of God!

May - August 2021 Ministry Schedules

Thank you for your generous support last week for the Collection for the Church in Latin America. The funds collected will be used to share the faith with our brothers and sisters in Latin America and the Caribbea, so they in turn can share the Good News with others. If you missed the collection, it's not too late to give! Click HERE to give. Your gift makes a difference!

Parish Using Flocknote More!
A year ago the parish rolled out Flocknote as a method to improve daily communication about parish activities. As we move to open up more post-pandemic activities in the coming months, we will be trying different approaches with Flocknote to determine the effectiveness of this tool. For example, Colleen, our secretary, is testing Flocknote to help sign-up Eucharistic Ministers and Servers for Aug 7 & 8. You can see it here: https://stelizabethcolumbus.flocknote.com/signup/62715. We may use it more as part of the fall ministry schedule.
In addition, Pam, our music director is looking for ways to use Flocknote in the future for music ministry. We are already using Flocknote for Saturday’s Notes from the Pastor, and internal meetings for Parish Council and the Knights of Columbus. It seems to have some benefits for those that use email and the internet regularly. But we will still maintain our conventional forms of communication in place.
So if you know of parishioners that are not signed up yet, please pass this link on to them. https://stelizabethcolumbus.flocknote.com/
If you have comments on how we should use Flocknote for the parish, please let us know. Feedback is always welcome.
