Happy Birthday to Us!

Feast of St. Edward—Celebration!

What a joyous, beautiful day! Our 49th celebration began with “Mass on the Grass” that offered truly inspiring music from over 40 singers and musicians. As households of all ages and sizes worshiped under the sun, an inspiring homily was shared and an awesome Mass was celebrated. Very special thanks to the many parishioners who helped make this event possible. Hats off especially to the Feast Planning Committee! Thanks to all who helped assemble, celebrate and then clean-up after Mass. Thanks to all who served food and beverages, made food, baked goodies, donated any item or amount of money, ran the games and bingo, cleaned up, provided hospitality and stayed behind to put everything away. Very special thanks to our King of St. Edward—Todd Murray—and to Fr. Brian and Dc. Jim. Thanks to the Social Justice Commission for offering the Feast Raffle. Let’s roll the energy, enthusiasm and pride in our parish into preparations for our 50th celebration next year!
