Welcome All

This Sunday’s Readings| May 22, 2022, Sixth Sunday of Easter

John 14: 27

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not let them be afraid.
Quote of the week
Fellowship is a kind of belonging that isn’t based on status, achievement, or gender, but instead is based on a deep belief that everyone matters, everyone is welcome, and everyone is loved, no conditions, no exceptions. —Brian McLaren

Love and Peace to everyone during this time of transition at St. Edward’s.


Masking—Masks are not required if you are vaccinated.  If you are not vaccinated masks are required.

Communion—We will return to having people come to the altar for communion.  We will no longer be using the plastic cups for communion.  Communion will be distributed in your hand.  I will sanitize my hands and be wearing a mask for the distribution of communion.

We will also return to distributing wine with communion.  As you come up for communion we ask that you pick up a plastic cup. You will receive the bread and then go to Deacon Chip where we will pour a small amount of wine for you to receive communion.  There will be a trash bin near for you to throw the cup away.

Coffee Hour–We will also begin to have discussions about having coffee hour. If you would like to help coordinate coffee hour please contact me.

From Deacon Chip— The suffering caused by the war in Ukraine has many of us wondering what we can do to help.  We can raise up prayers for peace and for those who are suffering as a result of the conflict. But many of us are looking for concrete actions that we can take.  There are several reputable organizations that are providing humanitarian aid in Ukraine and the countries of eastern Europe that are receiving refugees. The International Red Cross, Alight (a local organization formerly known as the American Refugee Committee), and Episcopal Relief and Development are all reputable organizations that are providing direct support to refugees and to civilians in the conflict zones.  Also, the World Central Kitchen operated by chef Jose Andres is present in many of the countries and feeding thousands of meals everyday.  You can donate to them online at their websites listed below.  Helping those who are working to meet the needs of the people who are suffering is a concrete action.
