Parish Mission

How to Be A Saint in Politics
 
Join us for our annual Parish Mission given this year by Father John Solomon, Associate Pastor of St. Edmond parish.
 
The topic is St. Edmund and Friends: How to be a saint in politics. Father will talk about St. Edmund and others who were involved in politics and still became saints and how we can do that in our world today.
 
The schedule will be as follows: November 11-13, Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday night at 7:00 p.m., and Monday and Tuesday mornings directly after 8:30 a.m. Mass. The morning sessions will be the same as the evening ones, so that people can choose which time works better for them.
 
We will begin with Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, then there will be some quiet time for prayer, the talk, more quiet time with suggestions for prayer given by Father, and finishing with Benediction.
 
On Tuesday night, after the final session, there will be a gathering for refreshments and fellowship in Room 1 of our Religious Education building. Please join us for our parish mission and learn more about our patron and about how sanctity is possible, even in politics.

Giving Tree

Each year you, our St. Edmond parishioners, are overwhelmingly generous in your response to the Christmas Giving Tree project, fulfilling toy and clothing wishes of homeless and disadvantaged children in the Cape Henlopen School District. 

Each child will have two tags on the Giving Tree, one for toy wishes and one for clothing needs. Please securely tape the tag to the outside of the wrapped gift when you return it so that it is correctly identified and sorted. 

If you cannot shop, please consider taking a money tag.  The financial donations are used to provide for children who are identified late or for gift tags that are not returned.

The tree and tags will be set up Friday, November 16. All gifts must be returned by the weekend of December 8-9, so that we will have time to shop for unreturned gifts before delivering all gifts to the School District. 

Volunteers are always welcome.  If you would like to help with this worthwhile project, please call:  Denise Boswell 302-537-1260. Thank you for your participation.

Letter to the People of God

Pope Francis has sent a "Letter to the People of God", August 20, 2018, in the wake of the findings of the Pennsylvania Grand Jury Report. 'It is essential that we, as a Church, be able to acknowledge and condemn, with sorrow and shame, the atrocities perpetrated by consecrated persons, clerics, and all those entrusted with the mission of watching over and caring for those most vulnerable'.   Here is a link to the Pope's letter: www.vaticannews.va/en/pope/news/2018-08/pope-francis-letter-people-of-god-sexual-abuse.html
