Parish News

On April 17th an Institution service for a new chapter of The Order of the Daughters of the King was conducted during the 10:00 AM service. It was a very special day for St. Elizabeth’s. The new chapter chose to keep the same name as the original chapter that has been Institute 25 years earlier but had folded.

Despite a chilly north wind, about 135 people came to the park for the 10am worship service, followed by hamburgers and hot dogs and lots of pot luck sides and desserts. The service rocked with wonderful music and songs. Fr. Dave didn’t have enough hands to keep everything on our makeshift altar from blowing away. There was some scrambling to keep everything anchored! No one complained of the heat!

On Saturday evening April 23rd the Boy Scouts held a painting fund-raiser. For many it was one of the few times they had attempted to paint on a canvas. Staring at a blank canvas the instructor graciously led each participant into the joy of painting. At the end of the evening the 18 participants had a masterpiece to take home and share with others. What a wonderful way to spend an evening. Who knows there may be a budding artist with you.

Recently two of our Scouts, Johnny Giordano and Josh Grimison, who are parishioners of St. Elizabeth’s, completed their Eagle Scout Projects. Johnny led a group of volunteers to fill and place 80 quarter mesh bags of oyster shells in the Indian River Lagoon for an Oyster Bed Restoration Project to help clean up our Lagoon. Joshua led and directed a group of volunteers to build 12 garden tables for Shining Light Gardens, who raises fresh fruit and vegetables for the homeless in Indian River County. We are very proud of these two scouts as they wanted to make a difference in their community.

Finding the Lost sheep and Coin

Posted September 12th, 2016

Link to Video of the sermon https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WHSrlsHzZqE&feature=youtu.be There are two types of attitudes we can have - One is disdain for the outcast, the ones we see as less than we are and the other is to receive then and help them. Jesus reaches out to the lost - not to leave them in the same condition to lead them to a transformed life.
