Some of what St. Elizabeth of Hungary Parishioners have been doing
The Saint Elizabeth of Hungary Outreach Ministry held the first of what we hope will be many candlelight prayer vigils. We were joined by congregants from the Julian Community United Methodist Church in front of Julian Town Hall. Our Pastor, Father Tim and Pastor Sylina Kidd lit vigil candles from the Easter candle to initiate the service. We read peace scriptures from the Old and New Testaments. Father Tim shared some thoughts on the need for peace in our own hearts given the conflict and violence that we encounter in our days. With candles lit, we processed to the St. Elizabeth parish hall singing the Prayer of St. Francis and Let Their Be Peace on Earth. At the Lobell Hall we enjoyed refreshments and fellowship. Stay tuned for future prayer vigils to come.
On Sunday May 22nd, 2022 our parish celebrated a May Crowning with a procession after Mass to the statue of the Blessed Mother near the rectory. It was a beautiful sunny day. We sang Marian hymns and prayers. The children of the Religious Education program helped to distribute flowers and prayer cards to parishioners to participate in the procession.
