St. Edward’s Cultural Event Series – Friday October 26th 7:30 PM

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 26 at 7:30 PM: If you missed pianist Xun Pan’s program last month, you’ll have a chance to hear this spectacular performer on Friday, October 26 at 7:30 p.m. when he returns to St. Edward’s for another free concert, playing piano four-hand music with Yang-Yang, an international competition winner and soloist.

The program will feature some crowd-pleasing favorites, including:  “Fantasy on Themes of Carmen” arranged by Otto Singer, Bach’s “Sheep May Safely Graze,” Debussy’s “Petite Suite,” and Chu Wanghua’s “Two Chinese Folk Songs.”

Yang Yang and Xun Pan formed their duet team in 2016 and have been touring many cities in China, Europe, and the United States since then.

Weekly Parish Email October 19th – October 25, 2018

Dear parishioners,

There was a time in her life when my oldest sister worked as an office cleaner. As people were leaving their work, my sister would be arriving and for the next several hours would clean desk tops, vacuum carpets and wash stair wells. Most of the office workers were appreciative, but there were others who treated her with disdain. Although my sister saw her job as important, there were some who treated her as someone of no importance and without worth. We all like to be respected and admired, to have a seat at the top table. But Jesus makes clear, this is not the goal of the Christian life; rather than sit at the top table, we are the ones cleaning the stairs.

This weekend, over Friday and Saturday the Diocese gathers in Convention at Williamsport. This means there will not be a service of Holy Eucharist on Saturday. Rather, the Saturday service will take place the following Saturday, 27th October.

Those who can make it, the confirmation class this Sunday will take place between the services and after the 10:15 service, members of the St. Edward’s delegation to the Diocesan Convention will be on hand to answer any questions you may have.

I look forward to seeing you this weekend

Blessings,

Fr. Stephen+

Thank you to all who made our 2018 Oktoberfest event a success!  The volunteers, the chefs, the silent auction bidders, the basket auction ticket buyers, and of course all of you who faithfully make baskets each year for us to auction and those who donate their wonderful vacation homes for silent auction.  Without you, we have no event and the fellowship and fundraising it brings.

For Oktoberfest 2018 we raised $3,291!  Thank you!
