Feast of Saint Edward the Confessor

Feast of Saint Edward the Confessor
Tuesday October 13th is the feast day of Saint Edward the Confessor, patron saint of the parish. One of the earliest Kings of England, Edward III had a reign characterized by kindness and the construction of St. Peter's Abbey in Westminster, more commonly referred to as Westminster Abbey. Following the inept rule of his father, Edward brought peace and stability to England after many years of cruel abuses under foreign viking rulers. Ever a pious ruler, Edward died childless and his death led to the invasion of his cousins from France, led by William the Conqueror, who would establish an unbroken line of English monarchs from 1066 to the present day. Just a hundred years later he was canonized Saint Edward the Confessor by Pope Alexander III. Saint Edward was buried in the very abbey he built and his tomb can be visited to this day.

In honour of the feast of our patron Saint, we will be celebrating two masses on Tuesday October 13th - the first at 8:30 AM, the normal mass time on Tuesday, and another at 7:00 PM. All are welcome and refreshments will be served following both masses.
