Please join us for our next Parish Mission Council meeting. It will be in the Pius XII Catechetical Center, Room 109, 9:30 am - 10:45 am.. Everyone is welcome!
The Mission Council meets once a month. We review ongoing programs, discuss potential future projects, and consider new ways of expanding and deepening our relationship with our sister parishes.

A big THANK YOU to all who are participating in this year's Milk Money for Manto fund raiser. Our parish supports two nutritional programs that provide a meal and a glass of milk to 200 children every week, and the volunteers who oversee the programs in Manto, the "Milk Lines," also give the children lessons in our Catholic faith. Milk Money for Manto helps provide the necessary funds to keep the programs going. We call them Milk Lines, but they are so much more!
On November 19th, 2012, five parishioners returned from a busy and productive mission trip to visit our two sister parishes in Nuestro Señor de la Agonia in Manto, and Nuestra Señora de la Candelaria in Salamá. The area within these two parish is equal to one third of El Salvador! The opportunity to visit with the people gives us the ability to advocate for them after we return to St. Elizabeth's. There are so many projects and programs that are successfully being overseen or completed, and several new projects identified while visiting our brothers and sisters in Honduras during our blessed trip! Please click on "November Mission Trip Overview" for more information.
Many parish groups here, including the parish school, the Ladies Guild, the Knights of Columbus, the Seton Moms group, the Squires, and the Catholic Daughters help make it all possible. Our biggest contribution comes from the parish at large, during the 2nd collection of all Christmas Masses.
By our Baptism we are called to be missioners through prayer and action, whether it is helping with a fund raiser at home, or traveling abroad. We work together to bring the Good News of Jesus Christ to others, and we thank you for your support!
