Sundays 8:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m.

Message From Father Alan


On this Fourth Sunday of Easter we celebrate both First Reconciliation and First Communion at St. Elizabeth!

God’s grace continues to flow through the sacraments bringing new life and renewal.  Next Sunday we will celebrate

Confirmation for the area parishes with a 2:00 p.m. Mass at Our Lady of Victory.  Come Holy Spirit to guide and confirm the faith of our young people as they journey through life!  

We are including two “job postings” for our Pelican Valley ACC with the bulletin this weekend.  As the needs of our ACC for business management,  communications and development increase, this restructuring reflects the same approach that other ACC’s are finding to be both necessary and successful.  All of our current office staff in our three parishes, as well as others, are welcome to apply for these positions.  The secretary positions at all three parishes will continue the same.

We also have an opening for High School Faith Formation/Youth Minister for Our Lady of Victory and St. Elizabeth.  An important new component of this position includes serving as liaison and promoter of our Catholic involvement with the Young Life program.  Bishop Patrick has asked our Pelican Valley ACC specifically to move forward and implement this partnership.  We are blessed with a strong, local Young Life (high school)/Wild Life (middle school) program which has always had some involvement from our Catholic youth, and are now seeking to be more intentional.  We are looking for young adults who would be interested in walking more closely with our youth, forming relationships with them that can encourage their relationship with Jesus.  Training is provided!  And we will be inviting the participation of our youth.   More Easter blessings!!  Fr. Alan



¡En este Cuarto Domingo de Pascua celebramos tanto la Primera Reconciliación como la Primera Comunión en Santa Isabel!

La gracia de Dios continúa fluyendo a través de los sacramentos, trayendo nueva vida y renovación.  El próximo domingo celebraremos

Confirmación para las parroquias de la zona con una 2:00 p.m. Misa en Nuestra Señora de la Victoria.  ¡Ven Espíritu Santo para guiar y confirmar la fe de nuestros jóvenes en su camino por la vida!

Incluimos dos "ofertas de trabajo" para nuestro ACC de Pelican Valley con el boletín de este fin de semana.  A medida que aumentan las necesidades de nuestro ACC para la gestión empresarial, las comunicaciones y el desarrollo, esta reestructuración refleja el mismo enfoque que otros ACC consideran necesario y exitoso.  Todo nuestro personal de oficina actual en nuestras tres parroquias, así como otras, son bienvenidos a postularse para estos puestos.  Los puestos de secretario en las tres parroquias continuarán siendo los mismos.

También tenemos una vacante para la Formación en la Fe de la Escuela Secundaria / Ministro de Jóvenes para Nuestra Señora de la Victoria y Santa Isabel.  Un nuevo componente importante de esta posición incluye servir como enlace y promotor de nuestra participación católica en el programa Vida Joven.  El Obispo Patrick ha pedido específicamente a nuestro CCA de Pelican Valley que avance e implemente esta asociación.  Hemos sido bendecidos con un fuerte programa local de Vida Joven (escuela secundaria) / Vida Salvaje (escuela secundaria) que siempre ha tenido alguna participación de nuestros jóvenes católicos, y ahora estamos tratando de ser más intencionales.  Estamos buscando adultos jóvenes que estén interesados en caminar más de  cerca con nuestros jóvenes, formando relaciones con ellos que puedan fomentar su relación con Jesús.  ¡Se proporciona capacitación!  Y estaremos invitando a la participación de nuestros jóvenes.   ¡¡Más bendiciones de Pascua!!  P. Alan
