We will be having a traditional, family-style, Thanksgiving meal with all of the fixings on Monday, November 21st.  

Our next school Mass is Wednesday, November 23th at 10:30 am.   The 5th and 6th grades will be leading us.  


The students will be able to enjoy one of their marathon rewards next Wednesday afternoon when we have our Saint Ball Tournament.  It will also be a dress-up day and we will wear our hats and sunglasses.

There will be no school Thursday and Friday, November 24th  and 25th for Thanksgiving.  Enjoy a blessed time with family and friends.

At the Education Committee Meeting Tuesday evening, it came to our attention that there are some mixed feelings in the community regarding how we should handle “Tournament Days” here at St. Edward School.  We discussed a number of the issues revolving around this topic.  In the end, we decided that we should ask each of you how you prefer we handle “Tournament Days” in the future.  The goal is to create a policy in order to make our future decisions more consistent.  Please click here to take the survey.

The Flurry of Fun Committee presents:  A Musical Night Out.  On Saturday, February 4th, 2023 we will be hosting our annual Flurry of Fun event.  Catering will be by Scotty Biggs and entertainment will be provided by River Rats Dueling Pianos.

We are currently seeking donations for the silent and live auctions.  Donations can consist of cash, gift certificates, or any other items.  If you would like to donate, please contact the committee to make arrangements.  If you have any suggestions for auction items or businesses that would be willing to donate, please share that information with the committee.  We will be happy to reach out to them.  We are always in search of new and improved items for the auction.   If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our committee members:  Julie – 828-7392, Nikki – 828-2912, Chassidy – 530-1835, Laura – 428-3254.

On Sunday we will celebrate the Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe.  It is interesting that on this day we will read about the moments before Jesus’ death; how he was mocked and humiliated.   Jesus is not the type of king that lived his life in a palace, nor was he served.  He is the type of king that was born where animals live, worked throughout his life, served the sick and poor, and then gruesomely died like a criminal.   BUT Jesus then rose from the dead to bring us new life in him.  Our king lived like his people so that we may always know that whatever we are going through, whatever pain we are feeling, he understands.  God allowed it to happen because “For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life.” (John 3:16).


May God Bless,
