Our History

 

The church and parish hall were designed and built by Stanmar, Inc. on land given to the parish by the Society of St. John the Evangelist, and the Church was consecrated on May 10, 1964. A major addition to the worship services was the installation during 1989 of a seventeen stop organ. In 2005, renovations to the parish hall, office and classroom areas were completed.


The chapel was designed and built by noted church architect Ralph Adams Cram as a place of worship for his family and neighbors in 1913 and dedicated during World War I. It is a nationally registered landmark.

 

For many years, the Society of St. John the Evangelist, to which Cram bequeathed the chapel, leased it to St. Elizabeth's for a token sum and finally deeded it over to us in November, 1983. A three-stop organ was installed in 1987.
