DEAR BROTHERS & SISTERS IN CHRIST

Welcome Message

Our website has been going through several changes and adaptations with the intention of serving you better. I hope you will find the new format more user friendly and will help you to interact with our parish and the rest of Mother Church. We have included a link to other useful websites that you will find helpful to acquaint yourself with news and events that are happening in our church today.

We are pleased to report that we have resumed the celebration of the Eucharist at St. Elizabeth Parish! So far, it has been a very engaging activity but has been worth the effort. We are so grateful to the volunteers who have been generous with their time and resources to organize the return to church and to do it within the established guidelines.

To comply with provincial health regulations, the Archdiocese of Ottawa requires us to adopt some best practices for safeguarding the health of our parishioners and volunteers. Many of these adaptations will be familiar as we have been doing most of these things already. The most significant are the following:

Physical Distancing and Safety Precautions:

  • Masks are required inside the church.
  • Hand Sanitizer will be available at the Entrance and Exits.
  • To maintain physical distancing, pews are assigned for seating. Please only use pews with are labelled. Families may sit together.
  • There will be no hymnals, bulletins or other paper handouts. Bulletins are posted on the website.
  • At Holy Communion, we remain standing and the ministers will come to our pews and will offer communion to us there.
  • Only one washroom for emergency use will be open. Downstairs’ toilets are out of bounds.
  • Please observe physical distancing in the parking lot and exit expeditiously after Mass to avoid congregating in groups. This is a bit difficult, but we have to try for the sake of one another.

Thank you for your prayers and cooperation in reopening the church. We are excited about this.

CHALLENGING FINANCIAL SITUATION

As you may know, our revenue from donations has significantly declined due to the Covid-19 restrictions limiting our gathering size and given that most of our members are in the vulnerable zone, who we have encouraged to stay home for now. Please help support St. Elizabeth by making a donation by cheque, cash at Mass or anytime online at our Canada Helps link on this website. If you donate online, you will receive a tax receipt immediately from Canada Helps. Also, you can donate through Interac E-Transfer at stelizabethparish@rogers.com

Please support St. Elizabeth Parish community with your prayers and a financial contribution if you are able to do so at the present time. Your donation helps pay salaries, utilities, and costs for cleaning the church among other necessities. The additional precautionary measures such as cleaning the church after every Mass have increased our expenses when our revenue is already falling below our needs, so your financial assistance is appreciated. Thank you to everyone who has made a donation.

Due to the changes brought about by covid19, the morning adoration to the Blessed Sacrament has been temporarily suspended. In the meantime, we shall be having Evening Prayers and Adoration Wednesdays from 4.15pm to 5.00 pm and Fridays from 5.00pm to 7 pm.

I welcome you to the new website and am hopeful that it will unite amongst ourselves as members of St. Elizabeth, as well as members from outside our environs. Praised Be Jesus Christ.
