St. Edward the Confessor Church is pleased to announce the beginning of its 75th Anniversary Year! On the 75th Anniversary of our establishment on June 11th, 1942, His Emminence Thomas Cardinal Collins celebrated a wonderful Anniversary Mass at the Church to kick off the 75th Anniversary Year, a full year of celebrations to do with the 75th Anniversary of our parish. Check out some of the details below:
This mass was a fabulous success, celebrated by His Emminence Thomas Cardinal Collins along with nine visiting priests with deep connections to our parish. After the mass a reception in the hall highlighted some of the fabulous work of our various parish groups as they worked together to feed over 400 people and it also featured a presentation on the history of our parish. A digital version of that presentation is available below:
Many thanks to Alvin who photographed the event. A gallery of images can be viewed here.
Join us in July for an Ice Cream Sundae Sunday, hosted by the youth of our parish. Any children/children-at-heart with a craving for ice cream are welcome to enjoy the wide variety of flavours and toppings that will keep their sweet tooth satisfied for days to come (or at least an hour).
In August the Knights of Columbus have already started planning our annual parish picnic. This year it will be extra special to reflect the momentous occasion and we highly encourage any families who may not have attended picnics before to consider making this their first.
One weekend in September the parish is planning to work with local groups and reach out to the community for a fun-filled outdoor event to be hosted on the parish grounds, as well as the surrounding area. All are welcome to attend and any local parishioners are encouraged to invite their neighbours to come as well.
In October the parish will be hosting a Talent Night, where we will feature live music from a number of professional singers as well as many energetic parishioners eager to make their debuts.
Dates for many of these events are still tentative. Keep an eye on the parish bulletin as well as the website for more information.Keep checking this page for more details about the 75th Anniversary Year as well as pictures of the events!
