St. Elizabeth Church
Outreach Auction

The Annual Outreach Auction
Can you help? Outreach is one of the core ministries of this parish, and everyone is invited to participate as a volunteer. No matter how much time you are able to dedicate or what your schedule is, there is a task that is available that will make a difference. New members of St. Elizabeth’s are especially encouraged to lend a hand. Your participation is a great way to meet parishioners and make a meaningful contribution to our outreach program. 
Below is a list of ways to participate. For any other information, comments, or questions, please contact the individual chairpersons through the Church Office at 201-444-2299 or
  • Prepare auction items for preview (create baskets and packaging and stage donations). No calls to donors required.
  • Prepare materials for live auction items.
  • Paint, construct, and bring to life this year’s theme. Workshops involve painting, constructing and bringing to life this year’s theme. NO experience necessary. These gatherings are always great fun, and a chance to socialize with fellow parishioners. We hope to see you there!
  • Upcoming Decorating Workshops Come join us for one or all of the workshops to prepare decorations for “Into the Woods.” It’s a theme very rich with creative possibilities, since we can draw inspiration from fairy tales.  It will be lots of fun, and many hands make light work!  If you have any questions, email Beth or Liz through the Church Office (201-444-2299 or  Come to one, two, or all three of the Wednesday evening workshops (April 20, April 27, and May 4) at 7:30 p.m. at St. Elizabeth’s.   
  • Donations: Please bring your donation items to the church when convenient.


  • Help set up the auction items, dinner, and decorations on Friday, May 6 beginning at 10 a.m.

The Evening of the Event:

  • Bartenders needed.
  • Cashiers needed: Volunteers are needed to record Silent Auction winners, and cashiers are needed to check out at the end of evening.
  • Of course, the clean-up committee always appreciates extra hands.

Calling All Teens

The Outreach Auction Dinner is approaching, and we are looking for teens who would be interested in volunteering for the wait staff for this wonderful and important event. Job duties will include table service and clean up, sprinkled with liberal doses of teen camaraderie, jokes, and the satisfaction of being part of an effort to dedicate our resources to others in need. We are looking for volunteers from 5:30 p.m. until around 10 p.m. on May 7. The caterer will provide extra help and a special meal for all volunteers! Transportation can be provided, if needed. Please contact the chair person through the Church Office (201-444-2299 or to let her know that you would like to be part of this important—and fun!—opportunity! And bring a friend!

The annual Auction for Outreach is our largest parish event, and the funds raised help to support many wonderful charities, most of which are experiencing increased need in particularly desperate economic times.
Each year the volunteers work very hard to ensure that the evening is rich in fellowship, food, music, and spirited giving. Please keep an eye out for future issues of The Tower detailing upcoming planning sessions and workshops.
