St. Edward’s Thursday Message – January 14th

Dear parishioners & friends of St. Edward’s,

Today, as we look towards the celebration of life for Robert Carter, tomorrow at 1:00 pm, via our YouTube live stream channel, and we continue to pray for Father Stephen, Rayelenn, and the entire Casey family as they fight their battle with COVID-19, we offer this prayer:

For the Human Family
O God, you made us in your own image and redeemed us through Jesus your Son: Look with compassion on the whole human family; take away the arrogance and hatred which infect our hearts; break down the walls that separate us; unite us in bonds of love; and work through our struggle and confusion to accomplish your purposes on earth; that, in your good time, all nations and races may serve you in harmony around your heavenly throne; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

(Page 815, The Book of Common Prayer)

We are accepting sign-ups for baked goodies (no main dishes, just “sweet treats”) for Rayelenn (we are looking for volunteers for dates in February).  Prayers are deeply needed, and of course, cards are so very welcome!

Cards can be sent to:
The Rev. Canon and Mrs. Stephen C. Casey
429 Camp Meeting Road
Landisville, PA 17538

Be well. Stay safe.  Keep the faith.

Michelle

At St. Edward’s, we have two ministries, we would like to call to your attention, in need of continued  parishioner support:

Our first, is our continued support of the Hempfield Area Food Pantry.  So many of our neighbors are in dire need.  St. Edward’s provided, generously, to this social outreach in 2020.  The need continues in 2021, for both financial and food donations.  Here is a food wish list for January: Spaghetti; Spaghetti sauce; Mac and cheese; Jelly; Peanut butter; Canned pears; Canned peaches; Instant oatmeal; Regular oatmeal. Let us continue our tradition of generosity for those less fortunate than ourselves.

Our second, is our Altar Flower ministry.  It is through the generous donations of parishioners that we beautify our altar shelves with fresh flowers.  These symbolize for us, a lifting up of God’s creation and are displayed in memory of those whom we love, and in thanksgiving for the blessings in our lives.  Such a subtle, yet important, component of our worship services at St. Edward’s.  There are 41 weeks in a calendar year that we seek donations of $100 for our altar flowers, with the remembrance printed in our bulletin and read during the Prayers of the People.  We currently have commitments for 9 Sundays in 2021 and we are seeking 32 additional commitments. It is our hope that you will prayerfully consider donating to this important ministry and help us keep this important St. Edward’s tradition alive. Please contact the parish office with questions on how to donate and submit your remembrance.
