Our Mission:

The Elizabeth Ministry is part of an international movement. We support the women of Saint Elizabeth Parish and their families during the joys, challenges and sorrows of their childbearing years and beyond. They offer one to one support, prayer, playdates, encouragement, and access to parish and community events.

Our mission, together with the Lord, is to build and nourish a holy faithful community by spreading the message of Elizabeth Ministry. Our ministry rests upon the scripture story of the Visitation in which Mary and Elizabeth share a vision of the radical goodness, beauty and truth of human life. By inviting our parish women to freely share the gifts God gives them, Elizabeth Ministry will provide comfort and support to families who are facing complications or crises during the childbearing years.  We will reaffirm that all life is sacred by recognizing pregnant women, reaching out to new mothers, and introducing all new babies to the parish. With the grace of the Holy Spirit we will extend His kingdom to all of the families of our parish as we visit and share the sacredness life.

What We Do

We support women by connecting parish moms. We alternate monthly events with morning play dates (focusing on the holidays or season) and evening fellowship events (where we discuss an article or short podcast on faith and motherhood). We offer both of these events to support women staying at home and working. Additionally we offer prayer support and encouragement, as well as, access to parish and community events. 

Membership

All women are welcome to participate in our ministry at any time of the year. Training is provided, however, most duties require only your own experience of the childbearing years. Meetings are not routinely scheduled.
