Evangelization Committee

St. Edward’s Evangelization Committee was organized with the intent of spreading the Gospel, deepening the understanding of our faith, and renewing the enthusiasm of our congregation.

We hope to encourage those who are searching and welcome back inactive parishioners. Our goal is to fill the pews with engaged Catholics who are filled with the Holy Spirit and intent on the mission Christ has assigned to us: “go out into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation” (Mark 16).

Youth Groups (Middle & High School)

The Youth Groups of St. Edward continuously strive to live out a relationship with God by learning about Him, worshiping Him and serving Him. Meetings are mainly comprised of different Catholic topic-themed evenings, meant to draw us closer to God. We pray, learn, discuss, play games, watch videos, do skits, build things, and learn about Catholic topics in an interactive way. We also help with various Parish and Community Projects.

Lunch is always provided at the meetings. Please consider joining us and helping build up God’s Kingdom.
