We honor our founding members, Pastors, presidents and guild officers who have all contributed greatly to the tremendous success of our spiritual development, support of Saint Edward Church, Catholic education and charitable works of our parish. None of this would be possible without the support, compassion, dedication and generous contributions of our members and parishioners throughout the years. 

We are very excited about our upcoming events!  Again this year, Monsignor will be celebrating a very special Remembrance Mass Thursday November 2, 8:30 AM for All Souls Day.  Our Welcome Tea will be on Wednesday November 16th, Saint Edward Rectory. We will be celebrating our Christmas Gala at the spectacular Breakers Resort on Wednesday December 7th. On Thursday February 9th, our Valentine Luncheon will be held at The Beach Club.

The Saint Edward Guild Charitable Works Committee, Co-Chairs Rosemary Clemens and Mary Ierardi, enters into our second year. The mission of  this Committee is to provide assistance, through community faith-based nursing programs, to Diocesan low income seniors, the poor, homeless and underprivileged families. The Committee organized in April 2015 has over 40 participating Guild members who have met monthly to assemble and distribute some 500 gifts. These gift packages include household goods, personal hygiene items, baby clothes and supplies and trauma patient clothing items.   Guild members may contribute monetary donations to purchase supplies.  More information is provided at the committee level for this wonderful support of charity by the guild.

Our 2016-2017 Membership Directory will be provided for you at the Welcome Tea. Also the Save the Date card will be provided to keep you easily informed of our meetings, luncheons and scheduled events.

We look forward to seeing everyone at our first meeting beginning with our Guild Mass 11:00 AM, October 12th.

The time you give, the hearts you touch, the lives you bless, these are true gifts from God.

May God Bless you,

Jo Anne Burkholder
