Elizabeth Ministry

Elizabeth Ministry is an international movement whose goal is to respect all life, cherish children, encourage families, enrich marriages, and build community. Based on the visitation story of Mary and Elizabeth in Luke’s Gospel, it is one of the most profound examples of sharing faith in all of scripture. The sanctity of life and power of the Spirit is revealed in the common sharing of these two women.

Following the example of Mary and Elizabeth, at St. Mary’s we pray for the sacredness of life as part of our Elizabeth Ministry. If you are pregnant or are someone who has recently given birth, or will soon give birth, and would like to be added to our prayer list, please call Mary Ellen Jackson at St. Mary’s Parish Office at 803.649.4777 or email mejackson@stmarys-aiken.org. We will include their names on our prayer list, which is available to all on our website.

Additionally, if you would like to explore other ways to expand the Elizabeth Ministry at St. Mary’s, please contact Bette Ross at the Parish Office.
