What is FLOCKNOTE?
Flocknote is a communication capability designed to let the parishioners of St. Elizabeth decide how, when and where do they want to receive communication from St. Elizabeth parish. It is a system currently used by a large majority of churches in Columbus. St. Elizabeth Parish is rolling this system out to help improve communication and awareness of parish activities. This is a fully digital system, no health risk.
We ask all who are involved at St. Elizabeth's in any way,
including non-parishioners and Mass-goers, to sign up for this
free service. It takes about 2 minutes. Simply go to
stelizabethcolumbus.flocknote.com and follow the prompts.
