The Fourth Sunday in Lent, March 6th, 2016

St. Edmund’s has been richly blessed by Cassandra Stadtler’s loving care and remarkable leadership in all of our Sunday School Programs through this last decade. She has shaped the lives of so many children, recruited wonderful volunteer teachers, developed innovative and effective curriculum and children’s programs, and blessed her parish in countless ways.

Cassandra, not without ambivalence, has discerned a call back into the Sunday pews. “Working with the children at St. Edmund’s has been my ultimate enjoyment and most fulfilling job. I cannot say enough wonderful things about St. Edmund’s church, the community and especially about you George. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to work at St. Edmund’s these last ten years.”

Cassandra looks forward to other forms of service at St. Edmund’s Parish, though for a time she would just like to worship in the pew!

We will celebrate Cassandra’s ministry on April 17th. Mark your calendars, and meanwhile
express your love and gratitude for her fine service!

This past Sunday we blessed at God’s Altar five purificators donated by Carrie Ford, and a Corporal and lavabo towel donated by Diane McCracken. Our Altar Guild members are radiant and devoted and through the gift of their ministry lead us to worship in the beauty of holiness.
