Elizabeth Ministry is a new form for a very traditional and beautiful ministry. As related in the story of the Visitation of Mary with her cousin Elizabeth, women have historically provided support for each other. Such community provides us the climate to discover that we are not alone. Elizabeth Ministry enables us to capture the essence of casual support systems and overcome the isolating and disconnecting aspects of our society. Through our Elizabeth Ministry community, we are able to use our special gifts and talents to affirm, support, encourage and assist each other in special times of motherhood.

Volunteer Opportunities Available!
Extra hands always help us better serve our parish families. Elizabeth Ministry has ongoing opportunities in several areas.Please prayerfully consider where you may be called to help.
Visit Moms - These volunteers in White Rock and Los Alamos bring gifts (pick up a bag from the parish hall closet) and make phone calls to check on the needs of new moms and report findings to the director and a volunteer who will arrange meals. (approx. one hour per new baby, which ranges from none to three in a month)
Welcome Moms - Several volunteers make the first contact with women in our parish who are pregnant or just had a baby. These volunteers make out business cards to hand out so new moms know who to contact if they need help. (approx. 1/2 hour per month)
SUPPLIES Crafts Volunteers
Crafts Volunteers- We can use more baby blankets for new mom gift bags. (time varies)
Elizabeth Ministry Director Gina Peterson can answer any questions you may have. You can reach Gina by email or call her at 661-8740.
