Food Pantry Collection
St Elizabeth was able to send a nice group of items for our kick-off donation to the Pantry. The Westchester Food Pantry expressed appreciation for all the items you collected! Thank you for all the participation!
Please note, the Pantry distributes items to 40+ families every two weeks and needs to split things as equally as they are able. For this reason, very large or bulk items are not easily usable by the pantry.
Bring your items to church anytime and place in the basket in the coat room.
Currently the Pantry has an overabundance of the following items, so take these off your list until further notice: bar soap, toothpaste, canned green beans, canned corn.
Sunday, Dec 10 at 2pm.
St Elizabeth Choir will participate in the Duneland Advent Festival held at St Patrick Catholic Church in Chesterton. The event ends with the mass choir singing of the "Hallelujah Chorus" from Handel's Messiah. Everyone is welcome.
Current items needed:
paper products (i.e. toilet paper, tissues, paper towels)
toiletries (shampoo, conditioner)
laundry items (detergent)
feminine care products
dry pantry items (soups, canned tuna, Mac n' Cheese, instant side dishes)
St Elizabeth recently held Bake Sale booths at two events: the Holidaze Sell-A-Bration Arts & Crafts Show at the Vaparaiso Expo Center and the Chesterton Hometown Holiday Event. These events were held the weekend before and after Thanksgiving. Many specialty and ethnic treats were sold including our ever popular Nut Roll. (Photos coming soon.)
The St Elizabeth Cookie Booth at the 59th Annual Chesterton Art Fair was held on August 5th & 6th. Members volunteered to bake and cover sales while the booth was open to everyone who visited the Art Fair.
Pysanky artist, LInda Teets, is offering instruction to anyone who would like to learn this traditional form of art. Sundays during coffee hour.
