St. Edward Mission Statement
St. Edward Church is a Catholic community of believers, rich in tradiƟon and growing in diversity. Recognizing the equality of all
persons in the eyes of God, we provide an atmosphere in which parishioners of all ages and cultures share faith through sacramental and Liturgical celebraƟons, ongoing faith-formaƟon, support of our school and other social and spiritual events which enable us to connect our faith with the world in which we live and lead our members to eternal salvaƟon.

Thank you.
Tengamos un poco de respeto a la casa de Dios. Por
favor ponga sus chicles en los botes de basura que
están aun lado de la entrada de la Iglesia, en lugar de
tirarlos en los escalones o en la Iglesia. Gracias

The collection at all masses on Christmas Eve
and Christmas Day will be for the Clergy Welfare
Fund. This fund provides retirement and health care
benefits to retired and infirm priests around our diocese. Our priests spend every day of their adult lives
as humble and devoted servants, doing God’s work and
serving us until age or infirmity calls them to retirement. Your contributions to the Clergy Welfare Fund
make our priests’ retirement possible. Please share
with them the generosity that they continue to share
with us.
La colección a todas de las misas en Nochebuena
y Navidad será para el Bienestar de fondo para el clero. Esto fondo provee retiro y cuidado de salud a los
sacerdotes retirados y enfermos alrededor nuestro diócesis. Nuestros sacerdotes pasan cada día de sus vidas
adultas como sirvientes humildes y dedicados, haciendo
el trabajo de Dios y nos sirven hasta edad avanzada o
enfermedad les llama a retirarse. Sus contribuciones
para el Bienestar del fondo para el clero hacen posible
el retiro de nuestros sacerdotes. Por favor sea generoso
al compartir y mostrar su agradecimiento con ellos,
que nos han servido, dirigido hacia el encuentro con
nuestro padre celestial.
