On this Easter Monday I come to say a loud and resounding THANK YOU to the music ministry of our parish, St. Edward the Confessor! Thank you and God bless you all. If you were able to be at any of our services during Holy Week, you would have been aware of the tremendous depth, breadth, richness, power, and love found in our combined music ministries. Under the guidance of Director of Music, Mary Jo Brue, and the many hands, hearts, and voices that are a part of it, we have 9 different groups that come together as one during special celebrations, such as Easter. The music is so beautiful, so powerful. So much work and preparation goes into what happens…. Thank you and God bless you to our Music Ministers! You made Holy Week and Easter so beautiful… just like you do every week of the year.

We had a spectacular Palm Sunday at St. Edward the Confessor. It was so crowded at the 11am mass, all I could think of was the people lining the way as Jesus made his entry into Jerusalem. We were full and many people were standing, all around the perimeter of the church, even in the gathering space, and in the corridor that is near the sacristy, as you head over to the Faith Formation wing.
People say that the Catholic church is dying, but you would not know that if you came to our parish!
I was also at the 4pm mass on Saturday, which was comfortably full. On Saturday we had a full choir and bell ringers; it was beautiful. We had lovely music at 11am also; we are richly blessed with remarkable music ministry in our parish.
Here is a slide show of photos from the mass; there are a lot of pictures, so it will take a few moments for them to all float by.
