Saint Elizabeth Catholic Church is located in a rural country town with plenty of parking. Just to the left of the white church is a very peaceful meditation area with a large statue
There are two side aisles and one main aisle that leads from the entrance to the altar. Off to the right side and before the altar is an alcove with additional seating. A triangular shaped altar features a crucifix hanging at the point just below a skylight. The tabernacle and sanctuary lamp are accentuated below. Since it is the twenty-ninth Sunday in Ordinary Time, the altar was draped in green. The altar table has two candles, a white cloth on top and a green cloth draped in front. Directly behind and to the right of the altar are chairs for Fr. Rafael Murillo, the altar servers and the processional crucifix. To the left side of the wall is the preparation table with the podium towards the front which is also draped in green. There are beautiful statues of Mary and Joseph on either side with adoration area for each. A partition curtain allows the altar to be closed-off so the rest of the church can be used for other purposes such as meetings.
There is something to be said for old fashioned country charm. I've been reminded of a saying, "Come on in, we've been expecting y'all." Without the southern drawl, the parishioners of Saint Elizabeth Catholic Church were very welcoming and love receiving visitors. Thank you for following what is said in Hebrews 13:2, "Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares."
