From the Desk of Fr. Peter
May the light and joy of Christmas fill your hearts and minds!
Today we honor the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph and
recognize their monumental role in salvation history.
God chose the family as the place where salvation begins! The
family is the first building block of society. God’s plan through
nature shows that no child is conceived outside of a relationship
between a man and a woman. This is the first fundamental
relationship that images the love between the Father, the Son and
the Holy Spirit. This natural cell of social life is where the
husband and wife are called to give themselves to each other in
love and to give themselves in love to the mystery of the gift life,
the family. It is in the family home that we all first learn about
God, about authority, stability, freedom, responsibility, respect,
justice and honor. In the family we learn moral values and how
to interact with each other in helpful ways and not cause hurt or
harm. It is in the family that boys learn how to become men and
girls learn how to become women and that they are different than
each other—they are not the same. The family teaches that men
and women each have a special role to play and all need to give
and receive the dignity and respect that God intended they have.
Family life is where we learn how to participate in society.
Today, our family of faith, the Church, needs holy families. As
depicted in the scripture stories today, holy families regularly
practice the faith with the community. Without them the Church
won’t be holy; it will be weak and there will be a lack of
vocations. Without holy families and vocations, society will drift
away from God. Staying close to the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary
and Joseph will always give you joy and peace!+++ Fr. Peter
Our Parish Mission Statement
We, the Faithful of St. Edward Catholic Church, are called
through prayer and worship to make Jesus Christ known
and loved in our respect and care for each other in our
hospitality and charity for all people.
