What is Elizabeth Ministries?
A blessing for expectant mothers takes place after the 3rd Sunday of each month. Please meet by the Mary statue after any Mass.
The purpose of the Elizabeth Ministry is to support and mentor women and their families during the joys, trials and sorrows of the childbearing years just as Elizabeth supported Mary, the Mother of Jesus, and as women have ministered to each other for generations.
Our mission is to cherish children, encourage families and build community. We offer peer support, mentoring, spiritual nourishment and educational and inspirational resources.
Volunteers become ministers in the areas they have experienced. This support can include phone calls, visits, cards, meals, prayers, resources and assistance. Areas of ministry include, but are not limited to: pregnancy, birth, miscarriage, stillbirth, adoption, fertility, infertility, child illness, child death and crisis needs.
If you would like to volunteer to be a minister or know of someone in need of our ministry, please contact Nicole Nolte at 309-241-1127.
