The Most Reverend W. Francis Malooly, Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Wilmington, has issued new directives to all the parishes in the diocese. More information is available on the Diocese's Coronavirus webpage.
Following Bishop Malooly's latest directive St. Edmond church is CLOSED. ALL Masses (Weekday and Weekend) and ALL liturgical and devotional services (i.e. Stations, Rosary, Chaplet of the Divine Mercy) are suspended. ALL meetings (i.e. Scripture Sharing, Workshops) are cancelled. The parish office and religious education office are CLOSED to the public. Click here for additional information.
Many of you have asked if Fr Cocco could do a Mass for us. Thankfully, Parsell Funeral Home helped us accomplish this in a more professional way than we knew how to do. We are truly grateful to them for making this possible.
Click here to view the Mass for the Palm Sunday, offered by Fr. Cocco, pastor of St. Edmond Church. The Mass was recorded earlier this week. (The video will be available on the afternoon of Saturday, 04 April.)
We are also working on streaming Holy Thursday, Good Friday, the Easter Vigil and Easter Sunday. They will all be done privately in order to keep within the established guidelines. We will be sure to update Facebook, our website and our email systems of communication.
Online Stations of the Cross
The diocese has produced the Stations of the Cross for you to view. We hope this helps. We will continue to update you as we receive more information. Don't hesitate to contact the office with any questions or concerns. Click here to access the video.
