Edge Youth Ministry
Our Youth Minister, Angie Bernard has retired from her position as Youth Minister. We remain ever grateful to her for the many years of joyful and conscientious service. We will keep her in our prayers for God’s abundant blessings as she continues for her final year as our Sunday School Coordinator.
With great hope and joy, we welcome Jeremy Tanuan as our new Youth Minister. May God bless him with wisdom, talents, and fortitude to serve with excellence and devotion.
Those wishing to take the Holy Eucharist to their sick loved ones must do so with a pyx.
They must also have the pyx burse/ purse hanging down their necks for reverently placing and taking the Eucharist.
Without the pyx and the pyx burse/purse we will be unable to give the Eucharist for people in this circumstance.
