St. Edward Guild

A Letter from the Guild President

Dear Guild Members,                                                                   

A heartfelt welcome to you with the excitement for a successful season of the Saint Edward Guild! 

We are very excited about our upcoming events!  Again this year, Monsignor will be celebrating a very special Remembrance Mass Thursday November 2, 8:30 AM for All Souls Day.  Our Welcome Tea will be on Wednesday November 15th, Saint Edward Rectory. We will be celebrating our Christmas Gala at the spectacular Breakers Resort on Wednesday December 13th. On Thursday February 8th, we will enjoy a Valentine Brunch and Fashion Show held at The Beach Club.

The Saint Edward Guild Charitable Works Committee, Co-Chairs Rosemary Clemens and Mary Ierardi, enters into our third year. The mission is to provide assistance, through community faith-based nursing programs, to Diocesan low income seniors, the poor, homeless and underprivileged families.  The Committee organized in April 2015 has over 40 participating Guild members who have met monthly to assemble and distribute some 600 gifts. These gift packages include household goods, personal hygiene items, baby clothes and supplies and trauma patient clothing items. More information is provided at the committee level for this wonderful support of charity by the guild.

The Saint Edward Health and Wellness ministry’s goal is to encourage holistic health habits for the entire community; to develop and sponsor public health and wellness educational lectures; to select well-respected medical professionals to share their expertise; and to provide DVDs of the lectures for community distribution. The lectures are offered on scheduled Sunday mornings in our Parish Hall with refreshments provided by the Guild.

Again this season we will have a Day of Reflection during the Lenten season. Date and time to follow.

Other spiritual activities are in the planning stages! More information on that to follow.

We look forward to seeing everyone at our first meeting beginning with our Guild Mass at 11:00 AM, October 11th.

The time you give, the hearts you touch, the lives you bless, these are true gifts from God.

May God Bless you,

Jo Anne Burkholder
