Daily Message from St. Edward’s – June 18, 2020

Dear friends,

Today’s email is very important!  It is a “MARK YOUR CALENDAR” EMAIL WITH 3 ITEMS!!

SUNDAY, JUNE 21st SERVICES:  Those of you who indicated on our survey, last month, that you would like to attend in-person worship once we moved into the yellow phase where we could accommodate 25 people for worship at each service, are requested to reserve your place at either the 8 AM Rite I or the 10:15 AM Rite II service.

If you are interested in attending services this Sunday, June 21st, please contact the parish office via email no later than Friday afternoon, June 19th. We must stay true to the diocesan protocols that have been approved by Bishop Scanlan.  We know there will be disappointment if we reach our maximum number of people and have to decline some reservations.  This is all very new to us, as well, so we ask for your kindness and patience as we determine a system that will allow those who seek in-person worship to be able to attend.  Father Rick and I will be in consultation as to what will work best to meet everyone’s needs and will make sure that everyone is spiritually fed.

To that end, please make certain, if you do reserve a spot, that you are planning on attending.  But also know we understand if, on a Saturday evening you may feel unsure.  You can reach out to me by phone and let me know.  Your comfort and safety are our primary concerns, so we will work through this new normal together and in these changing times, we will “go with the flow” and make it work for each other.

Know that we will have a wonderful live streamed service at 10:15 AM on YouTube Live, so in place of the prerecorded service from past weeks, you can be at the service while it is happening!  We will have the service bulletin uploaded to our website and will provide the link in the Friday email.

Another change starting this week is our Virtual Coffee Hour on Sundays.  It will now switch to a Saturday Social from 9 AM – 9:40 AM.  Our hosts, Joe & Christina McLaughlin, will start our weekend off right with fellowship at a time that we hope will be convenient for all.  So, join us THIS SATURDAY at 9:00 AM.  The link and details will also be in Friday’s email.



Friday Evening Prayer is tomorrow at 7:00 PM.  This is a wonderful way to peacefully end our week and is led by Patrick Ishler.  Join us on Zoom:

Be well. Stay safe.  Keep the Faith.  We look forward to this upcoming weekend!


And remember, share our posts with your friends on Facebook as well as our YouTube page and our website!  To grow, we need to spread the good news and tell people about our wonderful St. Edward’s parish.  We have many offerings, virtually, to allow them to be “in community” with us!
