We celebrated a Hierarchical Divine Liturgy on the Feast of our heavenly Patroness, the venerable Martyr Grand Duchess Elizabeth and the 24th anniversary of the founding of our parish. We were blessed and honored with the visit of Bishop Nicholas of Manhattan on this special day as he ordained our new Deacon Father Michael and tonsured Reader Timothy. Special thanks to all that helped with cleaning, decorating and setting up the trapeza and donating. S Prazdnikom!
Thank you to our parishioner that funded the acquisition of the new brass bell and those who helped in its installation. Special thank you to Rocky Hill FD and Montgomery FD for coordinated assistance in lifting it up to the belfry. God bless them!

September 2001-February 2004
From the Spring of 1998 through August of 2001, all the liturgical services, fellowship, and meetings of St Elizabeth's Mission were held in the home of our priest, Fr David Straut, on Eastern Avenue in Somerville. From September 2001 to February 2004, a faithful parishioner allowed the Mission to use a large room at the back of his house on North Bridge Street in Somerville as a dedicated Chapel and his basement for fellowship and meetings.
