First Holy Communion Practice

There will be a short practice for First Holy Communion and First Confession on Sunday, June 7, after the 11:00 AM Mass. We ask that all First Holy Communion students and their parents be present at the practice so that we can go over the manner of going to Confession and receiving Holy Communion one last time with the children. First Confessions are scheduled for Friday, June 12, at 6:00 PM and First Holy Communion will be Saturday, June 13, at the 4:30 PM Vigil Mass. If you have any questions, please contact Paul Kankiewicz.

Habrá una breve práctica para la Primera Comunión y la Primera Confesión el domingo 7 de junio, después de la Misa de las 11:00 AM (como en todos los eventos en este momento, debido a las condiciones actuales, los horarios de las Misas están sujetos a cambios). Pedimos que todos los estudiantes de la Primera Comunión y sus padres estén presentes en la práctica para que podamos repasar la forma de ir a la Confesión y recibir la Sagrada Comunión por última vez con los niños. Las Primeras Confesiones están programadas para el viernes 12 de junio a las 6:00 p.m. y la Primera Comunión será el sábado 13 de junio a las 4:30 p.m. Misa de vigilia. Si tiene alguna pregunta, comuníquese con Paul Kankiewicz.

Holy Mass Etiquette

Holy Mass Etiquette Reminders

Our behavior in Church has an effect on other people. In charity, we need to be sensitive to each other and provide a good example.

  • Please be on time for Holy Mass.
  • Please stay until Holy Mass has ended, i.e. when the priest processes from church.
  • Please dress appropriately and modestly.
  • Please use the Children's Room when needed for young children.
  • Please enter and exit the Church quietly before and after Holy Mass so people can pray in peace.

Additional Announcements

https://charlottediocese.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/10/QVD_Save_the_Date_2020_update.webpQuo Vadis Days is a five-day vocations discernment camp for young men in the Diocese of Charlotte. The camp includes talks by local priests, seminarians, and others on the vocations to the priesthood, marriage, and fatherhood.  The goal of Quo Vadis Days is to challenge young men to ask the fundamental question “quo vadis” or “where are you going?”, while equipping them with the tools and opportunity to discern God’s will for their lives. This year's camp is scheduled for July 6–10. The location for the camp this year will be on the brand new St. Joseph College Seminary campus.  The camp will be open to young men ages 17–19.  For more information and to register, please click here to visit the application webpage.

The Knights of Columbus are sponsoring the St. Elizabeth Red Cross Blood Drive again on Tuesday, July 7 in the downstairs Pat Jones Hall. Mark your calendars. Hours and registration information will be posted here.

Youth Group

The next meeting of the St. Elizabeth high school youth group will be Saturday, June 28th at 5:45 PM, after the Vigil Mass. If you are a student in high school or are entering 9th grade this fall, please join us for an evening of fun and fellowship! Dinner will be provided.

Faith Formation Textbook Return

We have reached the end of another Faith Formation academic year, and what a strange end it was! As was instructed at the beginning of this Faith Formation year, if any student still has their Faith & Life Series student textbook at home with them, please return it to the church so that we can reuse it next year and keep the cost of buying new books as low as possible. We ask that all textbooks be returned no later than Sunday, June 28. There will be a box at the main entrance to the church (between the two sets of glass doors) as well as a box in the entryway to the parish office downstairs. Please drop the books in either box and they will be collected later. If you come to the downstairs parish office to drop them off during office hours, be sure to ring the doorbell to be let in. Thank you for your cooperation.

The Totus Tuus summer program has been cancelled by the Diocese of Charlotte for 2020.  We hope to offer our own summer youth program in lieu of Totus Tuus.  More information will be posted as soon as it is available.  If you have questions, please contact Paul Kankiewicz.

Please remember to support the work and ministry of this Parish with your donations. If you have been unable to attend Masses because of the cancellations and uncertainties, you can still help. Bring your offering by the Parish Office or give online at https://www.saintecc.org/online. You may also mail your gift to St. Elizabeth CC, 259 Pilgrims Way, Boone, NC  28607.  Thank you for remembering St. Elizabeth.

A Federal Court ruling lifted Governor Cooper's restrictions on worship.  We are now permitted to offer public Masses with precautionary measures in place. Please note.  If you have been ill during the past two weeks, stay home.  If you feel that attending Mass puts you at risk, stay home. If you feel that receiving Holy Communion puts you at risk, do not present  yourself for Communion.  Protect yourself and our parishioners with these simple common sense guidelines.

If you do attend a Mass or any other event at St. Elizabeth, you do so voluntarily and at your own risk.  Neither St. Elizabeth Church, St. Elizabeth Church staff, nor St. Elizabeth Church volunteers assume any responsibility for any illness, injury, trauma, or other damages which you may believe or otherwise allege were acquired by or while attending Masses or events on our campuses.
