The Dubuque Rescue Mission serves breakfast and lunch 7 days a week and dinner every Monday, Tuesday and Friday. They serve approximately 4000 meals every month. Our St. Elizabeth Pastorate provides a meal at the Rescue Mission every other month. Thank you to all who support this cause. The picture shows some of our members serving the meal in February.

In the pictures below, members of our community are volunteering to build a home.

ST. ELIZABETH PASTORATE MISSION STATEMENT

The Social Justice Committee of St. Elizabeth Pastorate will empower the parish community to proclaim the Good News through the practical works of charity, justice and peace by responding to the needs of God’s people in the parish and on a local, national and global level.  We will do this by promoting:

  1.      Identification of issues

By listening to parishioners needs

By assessing the needs of the local, county and world community

By determining priorities for action

     2.       Education of parishioners through communication 

By Pulpit announcements

By church bulletin notes

By providing parishioners with handouts

By personal invitations, letters and phone calls

By displays in the gathering space

  1.      Leadership and Support

By identifying parishioners with gifts/talents to spearhead projects

By enlisting the aid of parishioners

By active involvement, both time and talent
