A 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.

Code Purple Training
Young Adult Group
Come join other young adults in their 20s & 30s for a fun evening event to deepen our faith.
On December 15 at 6:00 p.m., young adults are invited to a pre-holiday dinner in Rehoboth, where we will share some laughs and enjoy the connections that will be made in a relaxed setting to kick off the holiday season.
It's not only about our faith, but ways in which we have turned to our faih in hard times and in times of victory especially during the craziness of the holidays.
Throughtout the evening there will be opportunities to connect, ask questions, share experiences and ideas, engage in laughter, grow our community and deepen our faith.
Young adults are encouraged to bring friends regardless of where they are in their faith journey!

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.
