Parish History

The parish of Saint Elizabeth was established May 22, 1967, by Bishop John J. Carberry.   For five months, Mass was celebrated at Alpine Elementary School.  The land for the parish was generously donated with the stipulation that the church be named after his deceased wife, Elizabeth.  Ground-breaking began September 14, 1969, and the first Mass was celebrated Saturday, September 5, 1970, with formal dedication observed on March 26, 1971.
