St Edmund's Episcopal Church San Marino


Glad word comes from San Tan Valley, Arizona that Canon Smythe is home safe and sound, working and recovering. He and Sylvia are grateful for our prayers, and finally sense that they are out of the woods as February’s medical crisis abates and leaves them with a deepened appreciation for the ordinary joys accompanying ordinary days.

The Olympus Choir will be with us this coming Sunday, Vicki Belnap, Director, the Fourth Sunday of Lent. The 175 members of this dynamic High School Choir are animated to be in our midst once again as we mark our Eleventh Year hosting this shared event.

Charlie Youngblood brought scaffolding into the Chapel February 27 and, with a bit of help from brother Bill, fixed malfunctioning lighting, LED’s and, behold, “Let there be Light!” Charlie is also, with a special property camera, recording our Church, Chapel and facilities, providing very soon a virtual walk-through of the campus. Thanks much Charlie!

Grace and peace,
