Our churches (Bankston, Epworth, Farley, Peosta, Placid) were beautiful for Christmas. We would like to thank everyone who helped with the decorating.

Congratulations to our 2022 Confirmation students. The students were confirmed by Archbishop Jackels at St. John, Peosta and at St. Clement, Bankston.

St. Elizabeth’s Social Justice Committee would like to thank all who helped with the Kentucky Stuff the Semi collection. The Friendship Center in Williamsburg, Kentucky, will be nicely restocked with products that will aid the people in their area. Thanks also to Fareway in Peosta for their donation of cases of baby formula and hand sanitizers, to the Floor Show for help with mattresses and box springs, to Simon Trucking for a truck and driver to haul and deliver our collection to Williamsburg, to the people who made donations to pay for the gas, and the many people who donated items, helped pack, and load the semi.
