Saint Elizabeth of Portugal Church, Sacramento, CA

The historic church of Saint Elizabeth of Portugal is located approximately one-half mile south of the California State Capitol in Sacramento.

The church was placed on the State Point of Historic Interest list in 1983 as the oldest Portuguese National Church west of New England. The lovely Mission/Gothic façade with twin spires sits diagonally on the corner of 12th and S streets. Inside one will find beautiful statues and stained-glass windows in the restored church – particularly images special to the Portuguese people including Our Lady of Fatima and Saint Elizabeth (Isabel) of Portugal. The church building is generally locked at times other than when Masses are held. Weekday Masses are scheduled at 7 a.m. each day; and weekend Masses are held on Saturday evening and twice on Sunday including a service in Portuguese.
