For the auction, the silent auction will begin immediately as soon as an item is laid out with a bidding sheet. It will end at 3:00pm. Some items will then be selected from these to continue to the live auction which will happen during feast. For the remaining ones, a herald will announce those that have won an item. Individuals can then pay for their items then, or wait until after the live auction to pay for their items all together. Payment can be made by cash or check. No electronic payments.
