You may not be aware that St. Elizabeth of Hungary lies on over 15 acres of property located here in Oak Cliff. Trying to maintain this large property is a love that parishioner Lucy Lemarr has taken to heart and is helping us to form a parish based organization to assist with caring especially for the many beds and trees here in our parish.
We are looking for individuals to help with caring for our property but also we are looking for some specialists to assist us with constant issues we struggle with on our property:
light maintenance and changing and fixing heads on sprinklers
help by caring and tending of the many gardens in the parish
help us find plantings and low water alternatives to assist us with conservation of water
or email the parish at email@example.com
Watch for planning meeting soon!!
Although the name may be deceiving, the University of Dallas Ministry Conference is not just for those who do professional or volunteer ministry, such as priests, religious, catechists, teachers, diocesan workers, etc. Instead, UDMC offers something for every Catholic who wants to become more knowledgeable in their faith and the teachings of the Catholic Church. The conference is a great way to join in fellowship, faith sharing, and prayer with the Catholic community of North Texas.
If you are interested in participating in the conference as a Catholic parishioner, we encourage you to check out the following tracks, which are relevant to every Catholic:
General Faith Formation
scripture, apologetics, spirituality, evangelization, science & religion, etc.
Justice & Service Ministry
Liturgy, Sacraments & Music Ministry (includes RCIA)
Marriage & Family Life
Technology & Media
They feature talks that discuss family life, marriage, parenting, social justice, faith formation, scripture, and Christian spirituality. You can see what sessions are offered in each of these tracks by visiting the Sessions page, and sorting by the Track column.
Besides the relevant talks available at the conference, many other happenings occur at this three-day event which are enriching for every Catholic. The conference features musical performances by up-and-coming and popular Catholic artists, a liturgical art display, and exhibitors who offer Catholic gifts, books, and information.

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is a communal process of spiritual and educational formation for adults who seek to become full members of the Roman Catholic Church through a conversion of mind and heart. The process is open to all persons, regardless of religious background or philosophical persuasion, who genuinely seek, by God’s grace, to live their lives in the distinctive Catholic Christian faith.
The RCIA, (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults), is a process through which non-baptized men and women enter the Catholic Church. It includes several stages marked by study, prayer and rites at Mass. Participants in the RCIA are known as catechumens. They undergo a process of conversion as they study the Gospel, profess faith in Jesus and the Catholic Church, and receive the sacraments of baptism, confirmation and Holy Eucharist.
The RCIA process follows the ancient practice of the Church and was restored by the Second Vatican Council as the normal way adults prepare for baptism. In 1974 the Rite for Christian Initiation for Adults was formally approved for use in the United States.
Coming into full communion with the Catholic Church describes the process for entrance into the Catholic Church for men and women who are baptized Christians but not Roman Catholics. These individuals make a profession of faith, celebrate Confirmation and Eucharist, but they are not baptized again.
To prepare for this reception, the people, who are called “candidates,” usually participate in the RCIA formation program to help them understand and experience the specific teachings and practices of the Catholic Church. Candidates, however, have already been baptized and committed to Jesus Christ, and many of them have also been active members of other Christian communities.
