Prayer & Spirituality – November 4th 9 AM

Are you someone who has a prayer life?  Are you familiar with the fulfillment and sense of well-being that daily prayer brings?  Are you looking to establish the discipline of prayer?  Perhaps you would like to deepen your prayer life?  If you have answered “yes” to any of these questions, please join Father Stephen and Susan Landin for coffee and tea and a discussion of spirituality and prayer at St. Edward’s on SATURDAY, November 4th from:

9 AM – 10:30 AM.   Mark your calendars and we look forward to seeing you!

St. Edward’s Fundraising: October 2017

Our final week before our big event is here!  Purchase tickets for a chance to win one of our wonderful baskets!  Tickets are 6/$5 or $1/each.

Also, consider taking a Silent Auction bidding number to bid on one of the four fabulous items we have to offer:  2 vacation rentals, a gourmet dinner, and a Lancaster Barnstormers Luxury Box for one evening next season.

And, saving the best for last is our wonderful evening on October 28th from 4:30 – 6:30 PM.  This year, St. Edward’s has created a fabulous “Supper Club” for all to enjoy. As you walk up the front entrance lined with luminaria, you will enter Edwardo’s Supper Club.  Imagine the wonderful jazz and standard tunes played by our wonderful musician, Doug LaSala, while you dine on a quintessential Italian menu.  Be entertained and delighted by the tableside magic of Joe Holwager.. . . and be ready to laugh with our headliner entertainment, the renowned Teresa Mastrobuono.  It’s all to benefit the ministry of St. Edward’s and to enjoy the fellowship of our parish family.  Of course, you will still have time to buy tickets and make bids throughout the evening until 6:00 PM when we will draw the winners.  So. . . help us reach our goal of $4,000 and keep buying your auction tickets between now and the 28th! 

What?  Haven’t bought your Supper Club tickets yet?!?   

You will not want to miss what will be a night of fun, frivolity, and fantastic fellowship!  Don’t miss out!  Don’t wait to hear about it on Sunday, the 29th!  We hope to see you there!    

Ascultation Brass this Sunday!

We have a suggestion that will ensure you’ll have an absolutely fabulous time this Sunday afternoon.  After church, go out for a leisurely lunch.  Then return to the church by 2:45 to get a good seat for a wonderful and varied concert of brass music. The concert starts at 3:00 p.m.   If you look closely at the musicians, you might know one or two, for they are all Physicians! They perform beautifully and have selected a terrific program.   A Sousa march, a rendition of Freddie Mercury’s “Bohemian Rhapsody”, Leroy Anderson’s “A Trumpeter’s Lullaby” and even the “Beer Barrel Polka”.  A few famous classics and some Broadway tunes round out the program. You will have a terrific time and be able to drive home before dark!  Please don’t stay home, hear wonderful reviews from your friends on Monday, and have to say, “I wish I had gone.”  Don’t be disappointed.  Come, enjoy, meet your doctor (?) and maybe go out for ice cream afterwards.   Ascultation Brass is coming to St. Edward’s churchBe there.  You’ll thank us for reminding you!

 

Weekly Parish Email October 19 – October 26, 2017

Dear Parish members of St. Edward’s,

Yet another busy weekend ahead at St. Edward’s. On Saturday I shall be representing St. Edward’s as I officiate at the wedding of Linda Frankenfield and Bob Groff at St. James. Many of you may recall that Linda was a member of St. Edward’s for many years and has fond memories of us all.

Later on Saturday I look forward to seeing some of you at the 5:30 pm Eucharist, and the rest of your at services on Sunday. You might also stop by St. Edward’s on Sunday afternoon at 3 pm for a wonderful concert of Brass Band music performed by the Auscultation Brass. As Libby Sternberg suggests on the St. Edward’s web site, “if you look closely at the musicians, you might know one or two, for they are all Physicians! They perform beautifully and have selected a terrific program. A Sousa march, a rendition of Freddie Mercury’s “Bohemian Rhapsody”, Leroy Anderson’s “A Trumpeter’s Lullaby” and even the “Beer Barrel Polka”. A few famous classics and some Broadway tunes round out the program.”

And, of course, while you are at the church, purchase more tickets for the Annual Silent and Basket Auction and Supper Club Dinner Event on Saturday 28th October.

A busy weekend indeed. I look forward to seeing you.

Blessings,

Fr. Stephen+

Krist Kindling 2017

The beginning of Advent is just around the corner! It’s time again to think about some pre-holiday fun with Krist Kindling.  I hope you’ll consider joining us in our 26th annual Krist Kindling Advent activity!

Krist Kindling is a fun activity where one family gives another family one gift anonymously during each of the three weeks prior to Christmas. The family you are giving gifts to is not the family that is bringing gifts to you.

You don’t have to have kids to participate in this activity. It’s for all ages — the young and the young at heart! All welcome.
