Bishop Johnston lifted the general dispensation on June 1, 2021 which signals a return to the obligation to attend Mass on Sunday and holy days for most people. A particular dispensation (click here) still exists for those who are symptomatic, or who have been advised by medical doctors to avoid public gatherings, or who are otherwise ill or homebound, as well as their caregivers.


Click here to hear from Fr. Greg more about the lifting of the general dispensation and the particular dispensation.

Those with serious health concerns, pre-existing conditions, or who are caregivers to the vulnerable, etc., continue to have the grant of a particular dispensation from the obligation to participate in Sunday Mass and Holy Days of Obligation. For more information on the particular dispensation, please visit

 

We will continue to livestream Mass for as long as needed so that those not attending in person may maintain a spiritual connection with St. Elizabeth. All livestreamed and recorded Masses are accessible through our YouTube channel.

SCAM ALERT!

Please remember emails from Fr. Greg or the parish staff will be sent from a stekc.org address. Messages from other addresses are from scammers and are not legitimate. If you are unsure about a message or request please start a new email to the appropriate stekc.org address. Do not reply to the original email.

Several parishioners have received emails recently from “Rev. Greg Haskampp” or some other incorrect variation on his name, vaguely requesting assistance and asking for a reply.

If you receive such a message, please check 1) the email address with what is listed in the bulletin 2) the spelling of Fr. Greg’s name and 3) the content of the message before replying, especially if the request is a vague invitation to help with an unspecified task. It most likely is a phishing scam.

Fr. Greg will typically use the phone to request a conversation with someone. If he uses email, the purpose is made explicit in the message and should obviously be connected to parish business. When in doubt, create a new message rather than replying to the original one.

This is not unique to St. Elizabeth and parishes across the country have been targeted. Here are two articles:
