Bishop Joseph A. Fiorenza, fourth bishop of San Angelo, established St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish on August 1, 1982. He named Father James P. Bridges as its founding pastor. The first Masses were celebrated at Blanton Elementary School. Later St. Barnabas Episcopal Church welcomed the congregation and Mass was celebrated in their church until Christmas 1985 when the new church on North Grandview Avenue was ready for occupancy. The fifth bishop of San Angelo, Bishop Michael D. Pfeifer, OMI, dedicated the church in May 1986, the first new church he dedicated as bishop.
Parish events soon crowded the congregation's limited facilities, so the parish quickly set about adding the family center. The building, consisting of a parlor, gymnasium and kitchen, was completed in 1990. Now that the pavilion has been added, the basketball goals have been taken down and the floor will be replaced and we have renamed the "Gym", the "Celebration Hall".
In June 1996 Father Mark Woodruff replaced Father Bridges as pastor. The parish continued to grow, and in 1999 the office/education building was completed. The courtyard, one of St. Elizabeth's outstanding features, was also finished. The Hollice & Sylvia Clark Youth Building and the Molina Family Pavilion have just recently been completed.
More than 1,000 families are currently registered at St. Elizabeth's, with a blend of Anglo, Hispanic and Asian making up our diverse community.
Each of the five parishes in Odessa has its own boundaries. You should attend the parish in whose boundaries you live. St. Elizabeth's boundaries are:
- Everything east of Andrew's Highway north of 52nd Street;
- Everything east of Grandview north of University;
- Everything north of Business 20 beginning at John Ben Shepherd (this includes Mission Dorado)
Those living within these boundaries are automatically a member of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish.
Everyone attending St. Elizabeth's should be REGISTERED. Pick up a registration form in the foyer of the church, fill it out and return it the next time you come to Mass or mail to the parish office, 7601 North Grandview Avenue, Odessa, Texas 79765.
If you prefer joining a parish in another part of town, you are welcome to do so. Just be sure to register there.
