Annual Events

Pancake Breakfast

In January the Knights of Columbus sponsor this annual parish-wide event held at the Bloomington Event Center (KC Hall). Many volunteer hours are spent preparing the mailing, cooking and serving the breakfast, and cleaning up. Each year the event benefits a different project or ministry at St. Edward.

Cana Dinner: Renewal of Vows, Candlelight Dinner & Dance

Every year, married couples gather at St. Edward’s Church to celebrate the Sacrament of Marriage, giving credit to the work of God’s spirit to enrich their partnership with commitment, trust and love. A brief but beautiful prayer service that includes a renewal of vows precedes the sharing of a delicious meal (really a food extravaganza!) along with fun and engaging entertainment, music and dancing. St. Edward’s Cana Dinner will surpass your expectations and will be a well-earned date night!

Help Plan Our Next Cana Dinner! If you have a flair for party planning, sharing hospitality or keeping track of details, the Cana Committee welcomes new members to help in the planning and presentation of Cana Dinner. The committee typically meets once monthly from October to February when the event is held. Inquiries regarding the Cana Committee can be directed to Donna Rubio at 952-835-7101 or


In September, the Gather event celebrates our rich tradition of service to one another and our greater community by highlighting the many ways our ministries serve others. Gather provides an opportunity to serve on the committee, to celebrate with friends and to give your talent to build a wonderful parish fundraiser that sustains our ministries and parish needs.
