Pancake Breakfast

In January the Knights of Columbus sponsor this annual parish-wide event held at the Bloomington Event Center (KC Hall).

Celebrate Marriage Dinner & Dance (Cana Dinner)

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. Couples are encouraged to attend Mass at 5pm which will include a special blessing of all married couples, followed by the sharing of a delicious meal (really a food extravaganza!) music and dancing. The event will surpass your expectations and will be a well-earned date night!

Help Plan Our Next Dinner! If you have a flair for party planning, sharing hospitality or keeping track of details, the Community Life Committee welcomes new members to help in the planning and presentation of this event. The committee typically meets once monthly from October to February when the event is held. Inquiries 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.
