Thanksgiving Prayer

This Thanksgiving, let us remember all the good things, and people, who have come into our lives. We focus on thanking each one who has helped us, and ultimately thank God for the good gifts of this world.

Let us pray...

God our Father,

Graciously accept from your humble people

a thankful heart and spirit.

Everything we have and are able to share with others

ultimately comes from your love of your creations.

Often we think that everything we have

is our own creation;

we ask you this day to create in us

a spirit of gratitude,

that we may always know

that all good gifts come from you.

We ask this through Christ our brother,

in the power of the Holy Spirit.

Amen.

The Giving Tree

ChristmasTree_20q4_4c.jpg

Saint Edmond's Christmas Giving Tree program is back again sharing Christmas joy with families in our local community.

Each year St. Edmond Church partners with the Cape Henlopen School District to provide gifts to homeless students and those in need in grades K–12. 

Your response last year was so generous, that the Cape Henlopen School District had funds for toys and clothes for children at Christmas, as well as funds to assist families after Christmas.

Gift cards are being used again this year and can be purchased at various locations. Some examples include: Tanger Outlets, Kids’ Ketch, Browseabout Books and  activities such as movies and bowling alleys. Gift cards to local business are encouraged!

Please mark your gift cards for the Christmas Giving Tree and bring them to the office or you may mail them. Please have gift cards in by December 5. 

Thank you for all that you do for those in our community who have so little!

Please mail the cards to:

St. Edmonds, P.O. Box 646, Rehoboth Beach, DE 19971-0646

or drop them off at the Parish Office.

**This year we are expanding this program to allow anyone interested to adopt a family and shop for them for Christmas. Please follow the link provided here to fill out a  questionnaire and see the guidelines for adopting a family.**

Attention: Please be Aware of this Scam!

Please be wary of scams where people claim to be Fr. Cocco and ask for money or gift cards. They create emails that are similar to the 'official' St. Edmond email, and sometimes send texts as well. We NEVER use texts to request things and although we sometimes send emails to collect for various ministries, we NEVER ask for a credit card over the phone or online as we do not sell gift cards in the office. If gift cards are needed (as they sometimes are at Christmas time) we ask you bring them to us. Unfortunately, in our world today, there are people who continue to commit fraud and cheat good honest people who are trying to do the right thing. If there's ever a question, don't hesitate to call the office first before you buy. We're sorry that we can't stop people from doing this but want to make sure you're aware that it is happening again.
