Give the Gift of a Catholic Education
Complete or partial sponsorship of a student can make a difference in a student's ability to attend St. Elizabeth Regional School. Our parochial school combines faith with learning to create a well-rounded student who is prepared for the challenges of life.
As an "Angel of the Lord Sponsor," you can provide financial support to families who desire the spiritual, moral, and intellectual growth fostered by a Catholic faith-based education for their children.
Choose from any three levels of support:
- Phanuel Angel: Donate any amount.
- Seraphim Angel: Donate a Half Year of Tuition ($1,950)
- Uriel Angel: Donate a Full Year of Tuition ($3,800)
Send your donations to Mrs. Kimberly Kocher, Principal at

Leading up to the Thanksgiving season, St. Elizabeth creates baskets for our families in need. St. Elizabeth also sponsors a giving tree each Christmas season. Parishioners are encouraged to pick a tab off the tree and bring in an unwrapped gift. There are also opportunities to sponsor a family in need during the season. Any parishioners in need of these services must contact Mrs. Spieker well in advance of the season so appropriate arrangements can be made.
One who is gracious to a poor man lends to the LORD,
and He will repay him for his good deed. - Proverbs 19:17
