However, please check this page often as we get back to re-opening in 2020 and we look to plan our future events in the fall and beyond. We hop you will join us! All of our events are free-will offerings and refreshments are served.

In April 2013, a committee formed to explore starting a concert series at St. Edward’s to invite people in the wider community into St. Edward’s. The committee drafted the following mission statement:
The St. Edward’s Church events committee will support the mission of the church by identifying, scheduling and supporting a series of cultural events designed to draw attendees to the church and to alert these attendees to other opportunities for fellowship at the St. Edward’s community of faith.
Since 2013, our Cultural Events Ministry has scheduled three to four programs throughout the year. Many of our concerts showcase the church’s piano, and we have featured a wide range of artists from outstanding local pianist Xun Pan, paired with other artists, to the Hershey Handbell Ensemble, mezzo-soprano Amy Yovanovich, Swing Street Jazz Quartet, the Rizzetta’s Tones Celtic group, Dearest Home ensemble of Civil War re-enactors, Hot House Jazz and so many more talented artist over the last 7 years!
Upon Father Stephen Casey’s retirement in November 2018, the committee voted to rename the series The Reverend Canon Stephen C. Casey Cultural Events Series.
If you would like to volunteer to help with this important (and fun!) ministry, please contact Patrick Ishler, St. Edward’s Choir Director and Cultural Events Ministry Chairperson at email@example.com
If you would like more information about our series, would like to be placed on our event email list (firstname.lastname@example.org), or if you are an artist or group that wants to learn more about performing at St. Edward’s, please call or email the parish office at 717.898.6276 or email us at our office email: email@example.com.
