St. Elizabeth’s is undertaking a feasibility study to determine how best to implement a successful capital campaign. This campaign is to raise additional funds to renovate and enhance our facilities. Our new site will provide facilities that all members of our parish can utilize, making our parish space more welcoming and inviting. We want to make this process open to everyone at St. Elizabeth’s and we encourage your participation by providing feedback and by praying for the future of our church. Members may participate with four different options, which will involve the same questions:
•Completing a survey online by going to this survey site: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/22RG76H
•Clicking this link: St. Elizabeth's Feasibility Study Survey
•Picking up a packet in the back of church, completing, and returning in the attached envelope.
The study process will be open until November 10. We look forward to hearing from you as we continue to grow in our faith and our commitment.
