Boy Scout Project
A local Boy Scout and St Edward alumni needs your help to complete his Eagle Scout Project. He is in need of monetary donations as well as volunteers to help. Nathaniel Ludwikowski is wanting to put in 36 lockers for 6-8th grade and 60 cubby holes for the 1st-5th grades at St Edward. This would be wonderful for the school. Please look under the bulletin attachments ( under the Current Bulletin tab) to find information on how to help or call him at 507-401-0044.

An Election Prayer to Mary
Pray this everyday until the election
O Most Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of Mercy, at this most critical time, we entrust the United States of America to your loving care.
Most Holy Mother, we beg you to reclaim this land for the glory of your Son. Overwhelmed with the burden of the sins of our nation, we cry to you from the depths of our hearts and seek refuge in your motherly protection.
Look down with mercy upon us and touch the hearts of our people. Open our minds to the great worth of human life and to the responsibilities that accompany human freedom.
Free us from the falsehoods that lead to the evil of abortion and threaten the sanctity of family life. Grant our country the wisdom to proclaim that God’s law is the foundation on which this nation was founded, and that He alone is the True Source of our cherished rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
O Merciful Mother, give us the courage to reject the culture of death and the strength to build a new Culture of Life. Amen
