Look for all links related to Sunday worship on our usual Saturday afternoon posting.
Many happenings at St. Edward’s, all listed below with easy-to-click links for reading and downloading of materials.
Our theme, this year, for the St. Edward’s Talent Show, Boxed Take-Out Dinner & Basket Raffle is:
Our Virtual Fundraiser is here! Click the link below to view our catalog that has instructions on how to order our boxed dinners, how to order ticket bundles for our wonderful baskets, as well as how the raffle will work this year, and when/where to tune into our October 24th Variety Show. It seems like it is a loooonnnggg time away, but we know these days in Covidtide go by very quickly, so reserve your tickets now! We will be drawing the basket winners on October 20th and they will be revealed during the variety show. Our goal, this year, is to make it simple and FUN for everyone, so if you have questions or need a printed catalog sent to you to participate, please contact the parish office.
Our fundraising goal for this year is $4,500. We’re pleased that in our first 5 days we are at 12% of our goal, but we would be remiss if we did not mention that 100% would be a wonderful thing to achieve! So, we hope you will participate and pass it on to friends and family. The “silver lining” is the wonderful opportunity we have, this year, for ALL to participate with dinners, raffle, and the show, because it is online. So, join us!

October is an exceptional month as we have two full moons
October 2020 is a “Blue Moon” month with two full Moons. The first full Moon is on October 1st. The second, a so-called “Blue Moon,” occurs on October 31st. In recent years, people have been using the name Blue Moon for the second of two full moons in a single calendar month. An older definition of Blue Moon is that it’s the third of four full moons in a single season.

Be well. Stay safe. Keep the faith.
Friday Lunch & Learn: October 2nd 12 Noon – 1 PM via Zoom
Please join us for this informative and spiritual time together. This week, we will finish our discussion about our Book of Common Prayer (Chapter 2 of Walk in Love). Attendance at every session is not required. If you would like to join and need a copy of Walk In Love, please contact the parish office.
We encourage you to have your Book of Common Prayer for each session and the text, Walk In Love is optional. If you do not have a copy of the BCP on hand, this link will give you the downloadable pdf.
Remember to take some time to devote to exploring and making notations on the handout that Bob has supplied so that we may engage in our spiritual formation together, sharing our insights, thoughts, and questions, and if you would like to offer the closing prayer for any week!
Each week, we will provide a hand out in the Monday emails that you can download and review prior to the Friday session.
Father Rick, Bob Mosebach, and Wanda Stoltzfus
