The 12th Annual St. Elizabeth Jazz Festival was a big success. Because of the pandemic and for the safety of our parish and community, we decided to host the festival as a virtual festival that everyone could watch from the comfort of their own home. Our volunteer committee quickly learned how to host an event on Zoom with music and live interviews. In between the music, Connie, our MC, interviewed Sister Tiberh, Liz, Father Jim, and Cathy about the spiritual and justice outreach the parish does for our parishioners and Highland Park community. Throughout the two hour event more than a hundred people logged on. People gave generously — raising as much money as last year’s event which was on the grounds of the church. The Jazz Festival raises 20% of the church’s budget. We are grateful to the bands, volunteers, parishioners and donors who supported the church.
If you were too busy enjoying the music and forgot to donate, you can still give in support of the operation and outreach of St. Elizabeth Parish. Use the online form to give one time or every month. You can mail a check payable to St. Elizabeth Church (write “JAZZ FESTIVAL” in the memo) to St. Elizabeth Catholic Church, 1301 Victor St, Richmond, VA 23222
