                             TIME, TALENT AND TREASURE

                  St. Elizabeth of Hungary Church
           2010-2011 Accomplishments and 2011-2012 Goals
          This will be published in installments. Please see our website for the full report.

  Our leadership involves strengthening community, “at-one-ment” with the varied members of our
  community, inviting parishioners throughout the year to envision the “big picture” of our faith
  community. We may find ways to break free of our routines, for example, vary the patterns of the
  team meetings, our ways of ministering. “Unclutter,” free ourselves of the non-essentials. During
  this holy fallow time of jubilee, reflect often on the good of our parish community, allow ourselves
  to be fed by the fruits of these fifty years.

Pastoral Study Goals (2007-2012)
 Develop an organized Youth Ministry.
 Locate place for Youth to gather.
 Develop an organized Young Adult Ministry.
2010 -2011 Accomplishments
1. The Confirmation Preparation program continues to be strengthened.
    ▪ A new master catechist was brought on board to assist with the Confirmation preparation program.
    ▪ The Soup Supper was scheduled for one evening and was well-attended.
        Other Confirmation class service projects now include work with HIHI, Outreach, and
        other ongoing communal service work.
    ▪ The interview process now includes all levels of Confirmandi from the end of sixth grade until the
      end of eighth grade.
2. The Youth Minister attended the Young Adult seminar at Fordham University to further update on
   how best to meet this very challenging sector of the parish community.
3. Youth Ministry works at ways to integrate social justice into the year. For example, the annual
   Lock-In featured a hands-on experience of homelessness.

2011 -2012 Goals
As the five-year goals wind down, reflect on what shape young adult ministry has taken in the parish,
identify the strengths and plan for a realistic form for the ministry. Continue to connect the sports
programs to the vision and mission of the parish, e.g., through board membership.

The verse for the Gospel Acclamation is from
Ephesians, a prayer for enlightenment. The Gospel             Next Meeting: October 18
itself opens up for us “the hope that belongs to our
call” (Ephesians 1:18). In the parable of the wedding          Elen Eichelbaum speaking on the topic of
feast, Jesus uses imagery for the kingdom, which the                how to talk to loved ones about
prophets before him used as well. But where Isaiah                 sensitive issues as you grow older.
emphasizes the bounty of God, the parable of Jesus
puts the focus on the response of those invited. The
feast is spread, but some ignored the invitation while
                                                                   FLU SHOTS
others beat or even killed the messengers. The king
responds with anger, destroying the ungrateful and
