Annual Feast of St. Edward

September 11, 2016

Hear Ye, Hear Ye!

The Feast of St. Edward is an annual celebration honoring our namesake, St. Edward the Confessor. It begins with “Mass on the Grass” at 10:30am followed by lunch, games and activities for all ages. As we bring all of our gifts to the table to share, it is a wonderful way of saying thank you for making our parish such a remarkable place!

“Mass on the Grass”

The Feast of St. Edward begins with “Mass on the Grass.” This very special Mass will be held outside (weather permitting) on the south lawn. Music will start at 10:00am. Enjoy upbeat, lively, contemporary Christian songs featuring the eclectic talents of members of our band, praise team and adult choir—with additional instruments featured, too—all working together to get your toes tapping. Don’t miss this Mass!

Lunch, Games & Activities

Fun for the whole family—stay after Mass for a free lunch (and the MN Vikings game) in the social hall, followed by games (including Bingo) and activities outside!

Feast Raffle

All proceeds benefit the Social Justice Outreach Fund! By dedicating proceeds of the raffle to this fund, we will be able to guarantee these monies will be available to support our designated charities. If we meet our needed income for the overall parish budget, then the raffle’s income will be added to the already budgeted monies for Social Justice Outreach!
