As the body of Christ, we are here to learn and experience a life-transforming relationship with Jesus Christ.
Through that relationship and our relationship with each other, we hope to find peace with God, love for one another, purpose in living and joy in life.
Beginning Saturday, June 6, 2020, St. Elizabeth's will resume it's normal Sunday Mass schedule in the Main Church. We are already having Daily Mass Monday through Friday in the Main Church. This requires us to put in place several requirements for those who choose to attend mass.
If you are able to help santize the Church (the pews and the restrooms) following Mass, please e-mail the Parish office at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 806-762-5225, ext. 1.
Please fill out our Mass Survey about the Mass time you would like to attend in order to help us plan accordingly.
Our obligation to attend Sunday continues to be dispensed by Bishop Coerver. You are not required to attend Mass at this time if you feel it is not prudent for you or your family.
We will continue to have Mass on Sunday live-streamed without a congregation at 10 AM on the Raider Catholic Facebook page or on our Mass Live Stream page. Distribution of Communion will follow the 10 AM Mass in the St. Elizabeth's North parking lot. Please read the instructions here. Please read both the Letter from our Pastor and the Letter from our Bishop below.
Starting on Sunday, April 26, 2020, St. Elizabeth's will distribute Holy Communion after our 10 AM Live-Streamed Mass. Below are instructions on how to come to St. Elizabeth's and receive Communion.
