Reverse Advent Calendars—Each year we have invited you and your family to do a reverse advent calendar for the food shelf.  If you would like to participate this year please let me know and I will drop a box off at your front door.  We will then hold another drive thru food drive on December 19 from 9-12.  You can drop off your food box, or contact me and I will pick it up, then and we will get it to IOCP.  If you can help that day collect boxes please let me know.    
Stewardship Season—by now you should have received your stewardship packet.  Please prayerfully consider your pledge to our 2021 budget.  Your support helps continue our work in St. Edwards and in the community.  Please return the envelope by November 15.    
Companions needed for our new Intern—
We are still looking for 2-3 people who can help with Benoni’s formation.  If you are able to help please let me know.


Part of Benoni’s formation is that he needs some companions to walk with him during his time of internship at St. Edwards.  This would mean praying for Benoni, meeting with him 4 times this year and providing encouragement and support.  We are looking for 3 or 4 people who are able to walk with Benoni (virtually) the commitment is meeting 4 times a year.  If you are interested please let me know.

Message from Lynne Whitacre—
 Dear friends,
It has been brought to my attention (for obvious reasons) that those of us age 65 or more are
being asked to stay at home and not attend or participate in social functions.  This is a fine goal; however, following this guideline leads to boredom, loneliness, etc.
With that in mind I will find folk interested in getting occasional phone calls as well as find some that are willing to make such calls.  We shall put such names together and see what happens.  Making a call every other week seems appropriate; however, more often would, of course, be wonderful.    
Actually, St. Edwards already has several folks that are involved in such a project. With that in mind I am asking folk to let me know if they would like to participate in such an activity.
My phone number is 612-267-6593, or 763-591-0466.
E-mail is
I look forward to hearing from you.
Lynne Whitacre

Forward Day by Day—We have the new forward Day by Day booklets in.  If you would like one mailed to you please contact the office at and we will send you one.  
St. Edwards has received a grant of $4000.  The vestry and I have decided that we will use this money to help others in these trying times.  The discretionary fund is available for emergency help for food, utilities etc.  If you or someone you know needs assistance please have them reach out to me.

If you need a directory please contact the office at

My prayers are with you always and know that I will keep you up to date as I have more information. I do miss you all and pray for the day when we all can gather together in person but know that even though we are not able to gather my heart is with you.  
Peace in Christ,
Fr. Jason B. Lucas











He is Risen! Alleluia!
