ST. ELIZABETH OF HUNGARY

My Friend,

I’m so glad that you’re taking the time to get to know us. I pray that you and your family are all safe and healthy during this unprecedented time that is affecting the lives of so many.
  
Who are we at St. Elizabeth of Hungary?  What are we about? We’re about open doors.  And open minds. And open hearts.

Whoever you are, wherever you’re from, whatever you’ve done, whatever you’re going through, wherever you find yourself today on the journey of faith, you are welcome here. This is a place to belong. This is a place to become. 

St Elizabeth of Hungary is a place to make friends – and to make progress, to grow in faith and hope and love, to grow closer to Christ. We’re working on caring better for one another – and we’re working on serving the needs of the community around us. We are living the Gospel Message!

We’re working on being a real family, a family of faith.  And we’re eager to welcome you home. 
 
Come and see.  And come “as you are.”  And when you do, make sure you find me, I’d love to meet you!  

Please know that you are loved and cared for,

Fr. Ed

THE HERRITAGE FUND

AT ST. ELIZABETH

If in some way St. Elizabeth’s has had a positive impact on your life, would you consider funding a gift to the Parish?

As good stewards of God’s gift of treasure from you, our parish leadership plans and saves for the future by setting aside reserves to cover maintenance and repairs and for unanticipated drops in Sunday collections. But like other community organizations, St. Elizabeth’s has needs that require funding beyond what your weekly donation can support.

To provide a vehicle for this, we have established The Heritage Fund.

“Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have,
for such sacrifices are pleasing to God.”

Hebrews 13:16

A Restricted Fund

As a church we proclaim and live our Catholic faith as did our ancestors since Pentecost. Our HERITAGE or inheritance of the faith is ours to use and live. But we also have a responsibility to preserve it and hand it down to the next generation of believers.

The Heritage Fund at St. Elizabeth’s will help us meet that responsibility. The funding it receives, often as gifts in honor of those who taught us the faith, will help to keep the campus of St. Elizabeth a proud beacon in the City of Linden. 100% of your donation goes into this fund. There is no Archdiocesan Assessment or tax taken out.

The fund will maintain a list of projects and things that need funding beyond the Operating Budget. This year’s list has five projects:

  • The repaving of the School Parking Lot and small Rectory Lot (both on Hussa).
  • Replacement windows for the Church Basement, Rectory and Parish House.
  • Replacement windows for the Church Basement, Rectory and Parish House.
  • Replace the slate and railings on the front steps of the Church.
  • Replace the large sump pump in the Church basement used to pump ground water and water from the boiler out of the basement.
  • Seasonal Flowers and Plants for the Building’s outside entrances.

For more information about The Heritage Fund or to make a donation please contact Fr. Ed or Dennis in the Rectory Office.
