Welcome

We are a parish family from many lifestyles and histories, joined by our common belief in God and in his son, Jesus, the Christ.

Blessed by the Holy Spirit with a wide variety of gifts and united together through Baptism, we strive to proclaim and live the Gospel. Nourished by the Word of God and the Eucharist, we minister to one another and together seek to evangelize those who are not of the faith community.

We welcome you to our parish Web site.

 

One of the richest blessings of our Saint Edward parish family is our strong sense of tradition. From our original founding as a parish community Saint Edward has been the parish home for generations of families who take great pride in our faith and the sense of tradition that has permeated our history.
 
Our Saint Edward community is always growing as we welcome new individuals and families to take their place in our parish faith story. Whether you can trace your lineage back to one of our founding families, or you are new to our community, there is a home for you at Saint Edward parish. God is calling each of us to reclaim our faith in Jesus Christ lived out in the Catholic Church. At Saint Edward parish you will discover a pastoral staff, and a faith community eager to help you become part of our Catholic community.

The Triduum

  The Easter Triduum is not a celebration of what once happened to Jesus, but is our celebration of what is happening to us. These days are “mystery” – not “history.” We celebrate God’s taking possession of our hearts at their deepest core, recreating us as a new human community broken like bread for the …
