Create an itinerary including St. Edmund Parish
The people of St. Edmund Parish are a diverse community of Christians whose beliefs are rooted in sacred scripture and the traditions of the Catholic faith. We strive to fulfill the commandments of Jesus to love God with all our heart, with all our soul, with all our mind, and with all our strength (Mk 12:30), and to love one another as He has loved us (Jn 13:34). We gather as community to be nourished in Word and Sacrament, and are sent forth to be, to see and to experience Christ in the world with friend and stranger alike.

In gratitude for all our blessings, we commit ourselves to love, forgive and support each other joyfully. We seek to serve others and to be active participants in living our Catholic faith.

  • Beautiful structure! Parishioners need to be more reverent though, others are trying to pray before the tabernacle prior to Mass starting. You are not at a concert hall. Quiet yourselves, you have all week to talk. Give God and those around you one hour of silence, let God speak to your heart. Leave the outside world behind, we're bombarded with enough distractions.
  • Beautiful Church. Attended a family funeral. Organ loft was impressive. The frescoes on the ceiling were very interesting. If I didn't live so far away I consider attending regularly. Modern 1st floor restroom was convenient.
