We, the members of St Elizabeth Catholic Church in Highland Park in
the City of Richmond, embrace our ethnic and cultural diversity and
are called to grow in our relationship with God and one another
through formation at all levels. With our Christian goal of social
justice, we will continue to work towards unity and diversity in
support of all our ministries, to evangelize and to be good stewards of
our resources.
The Church of the Redeemer, is offering the 9 day Novena of Divine
Mercy beginning Good Friday, March 25, 2016 at 3 PM. Jesus said,
“On each day of the novena you will bring to My heart a different
group of souls and you will immerse them in this ocean of My mercy…”
Jesus desires to give each one of us Extraordinary Graces. He desires
for you to participate by drawing need to him. The Celebration
concludes on April 3, 2016, Divine Mercy Sunday, from 2 to 4 PM.
Please invite your friends and family to join us for the Movie Divine
