St. Edward Happenings
THANK YOU– Thank you to all who took the time to be with Jesus in Adoration and pray for our youth while they were on retreat. Thank you for all who supported this retreat. The treasures that were given to our youth during this time will be with them through eternity!! “Pray with great confidence, with confidence based upon the goodness and infinite generosity of God and upon the promises of Jesus Christ. God is a spring of living water which flows unceasingly into the hearts of those who pray.”
-St. Louis de Montfort

ADVENT PRAYER SERVICE – All are invited to attend the Advent Prayer Service with Bishop John M. LeVoir on Sunday, December 10 at 2:00 pm in Tracy at the Church of St. Mary. Bishop will preside at this Advent Prayer Service as we come together to prepare our hearts for the celebration of Christ’s birth. The event includes Advent songs and readings, an offering to the poor, and the blessing of all who come. Participants are invited to bring the Baby Jesus from their Home nativity set to be blessed by the Bishop during the Service. There will be a blessing on families and expectant mothers as they prepare for Jesus’ birth in their hearts. In keeping with the generosity of the Advent season, families are also invited to bring a gift of “swaddling clothes” (blankets, sleepers, layette items ,etc.) that will be donated to WE CARE in Morgan. Any cash donations will also be taken to WE CARE in Morgan. We Care in Morgan, MN helps so many people all year long!! It is a "family" run food shelf. They deliver to many, many people during the holiday season and also have many that come for help. They do great work!

If you haven’t made your pledge or given a gift, please consider making your contribution now. Remember that your gift also supports our parish project. Be assured that your gift will only be used to support those ministries designated in the DMA brochure and no other.
