Past ECW Events

Women's Group Luncheon

Lenten Book Group 
The Rev. Joan Conley leads the Friday Book Group discussion for the season of Lent. 

Annual Winter Coat Drive
Coats in good, gently used condition are collected for The Apostles’ House in Newark and St. Paul’s Shelter in Paterson. Women’s, men’s, and children’s coats and winter jackets are gratefully accepted. Hats, gloves, mittens, scarves, and warm boots in good condition are also needed.

Christmas Gifts for the Men’s Rooming House at Apostle’s House
The Men’s Rooming House has accommodations for 12 men; some have been residents of other institutions and some are employed but at a very low wage. All of them are either disconnected from their families or have no family members. St. Elizabeth's individuals support them with Christmas gifts, and in some cases these provisions are all that they receive at Christmas. Please watch for the Christmas tree with the names on it and let us help these men to enjoy the season. All gifts are brought to the church and delivered at the holidays.

Annual Holiday Boutique and Greens Sale
ECW's annual holiday fundraiser event is a Greens Sale, along with the Attic Treasures and Bake Sale. Proceeds from these will be donated to outreach charities for women and children. 

Annual ECW Linen Drive for Apostles’ House each Spring
Apostles’ House requests single-size bedding, towels, and throws.  Linens need not be new, but must be in good condition.  Linens for cribs are also needed.  Please contact Mollie through the church office with any questions (201-444-2299 or This email address is being protected from spambots.

Volunteers are needed each year to staff the thrift shop in Midland Park for five days at the end of June. Two shifts are available: 10 a.m. - 12 p.m. and 1-3 p.m. St. Elizabeth’s receives funding from this shop to help sponsor our outreach programs. We are asked to volunteer at the store only once a year, but we need to donate clothes and small household articles throughout the year. Be sure your donation is tagged with #4 for St. Elizabeth’s.
