St. Edward’s Thursday Message – July 16, 2020

Dear friends,

Look for the Saturday afternoon message which will have links to all things for Sunday worship.

We are so grateful for the response in these first two weeks of the Memorial Garden fundraiser. As of the writing of this email, through the generosity of all of you, we have raised $6,200.  The response is so gratifying and tells us how very important it is to beautify and steward this sacred space.

On the Basket Auction front, we have secured 13 baskets (we are seeking 20 baskets).  We hope others will prayerfully consider donating a basket, or if you would like to contact the office and contribute a basket but need us to do the “shopping,” please let us know!  We are working on a fun and inventive way to hold our auction this year, so stay tuned!!

We hope people are gathering up their favorite recipes to share, as well as tapping into their creative spirit to help us compile a wonderful cookbook that shows our fellow parishioners and wider community how special we are and could be used to promote our parish community and raise funds for social outreach.

We are also participating in a school supply drive for the Landisville Primary Center for the 2020/2021 school year.  Supplies needed are:

Pencils
Colored pencils
Crayons
Erasers
Notebook paper
Colored paper
Glue sticks
Tissues
Hand Sanitizer
Dry Erase Markers, fine pt., black
Dry Erase Markers, fine pt., red
Folders without clasps

Let’s help our neighborhood children be ready to learn!  There will be a drop off box in the narthex on Sundays and in the front entry just inside the red doors during the week for supply drop off.  We thank you for your generosity in helping St. Edward’s reach out to the wider community.

As a friendly reminder, we are mindfully complying with the mitigation efforts established through the Governor’s office, as well as our Diocesan office.

Be well. Stay safe. Keep the faith.
