About the Church
The St. Elizabeth of Hungary Church was built in 1982 and was dedicated on June 27 of that year by the Most Reverend P. F. Reding, Bishop of Hamilton. It was built to serve the residents of the St. Elizabeth Village and the surrounding community and is currently attended by visitors and residents alike.
The building is triangular which is an unusual shape for a Church, but it is meant to symbolically represent the most Holy Trinity. The Church houses 24 stained glass windows that were designed by Msgr. C.H. Henkey and skillfully crafted by Dutch artist Jan Schoenaker. He used the same methods to create these pieces of art as those practiced in the Middle Ages to create the stained glass of the great Cathedrals. He mixed pigments, painted the designs and fused the glass by blowtorch. Some of the great personalities of more than 3000 years of salvation history are pictured on these windows. The stained glass were installed in 1987 and blessed on July 12.

The Church is also home to the three bells, St. Stephen, St. Ladislas and St. Elizabeth, a staple in the Village and surrounding community. The bells ring three times daily and can be heard to mark morning mass at 8:00am, Angelus at Noon and again at 6:00pm.

The newest addition to the Church is the Corpus that stands behind the altar. It was installed in 2016 and was donated by members of the Church community. It was made by Canadian sculptor Timothy P. Schmalz who is  known for his famous bronze sculpture of the Homeless Christ that depicts Jesus as a homeless person sleeping on a park bench.

The Church is directly connected to the St. Elizabeth Villa (Retirement Residence) through a wheelchair accessible hallway. It provides ease and convenience for those residents who wish to attend Mass or partake in private meditation and prayer.
