Gather to Celebrate, Serve and Share!
On September 15, we will celebrate life at St. Edward and all that it has come to mean for each of our families with a day-long fall festival and fundraiser. 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.
Here are the top seven things you need to know about Gather!
- The purpose of Gather is to celebrate our church family and promote discipleship and community hospitality at our daylong event on Sunday, September 15.
