St. Elizabeth Catholic Parish is a vibrant,
Christ-centered community whose primary purpose is to celebrate the sacred liturgy and the Sacraments. Empowered by the Sacraments, we are called to personal holiness, to spread the word of God, and to actions of generosity and compassion toward all of God's people. We aspire, through prayer and action, to further God's kingdom on earth.
St. Elizabeth School
A Nationally Recognized Blue Ribbon School of Excellence
Our Mission: To provide a Christ-centered,
child-focused learning environment where Catholic ideals and a tradition of excellence are instilled.
Started in the spring of 2006 many volunteers have transformed this plot of empty land to an award winning garden and outdoor classroom.
The St. Elizabeth garden is a special place that feeds our minds, bodies, and spirit. The community space provides the opportunity for us to work, learn, and enjoy nature together. Using the garden as an outdoor classroom to teach our youth and others how important growing our gifts and sharing the abundance can be to all. No green thumb is required to participate. All are welcome to help with long-term development of garden, tending to the needs of plants, trees and shrubs, helping with general upkeep or participating in the enjoyment of its beauty. Take a walk through the garden and enjoy the beauty that God has given to us. Come Grow With Us.
