From the Pastor

New Faces on Campus

09-17-2017Fr. Scott Holmer

I have a lot of good news to share with you. Firstly, we have fixed the leaky drain that is located above the confessional so no more water is getting in after it rains. Also, I was up on the roof with a roofer to see if we need a new one. Eventually we will need a new flat roof around the main Church, but for the time being there are no big visible leaks.

We also have two new hires here at St. Edward's. Our new parish secretary, Anne Brennan has already been hard at work. she was previously the parish secretary from St. Pius X and comes highly recommended. Already she has organized all of our Church activities on Google calendar! If you swing by the office, please welcome her. I would also like to publicly say than you to Cathy McClelland for volunteering in the office until we were able to find a full-time secretary. Her willingness to help out was truly a saving grace.
