Prayer Shawl

The purpose of the Prayer Shawl Ministry is to give those in need of comfort a hand-made shawl or lap blanket as a token of our faith community’s support and prayer. The prayer shawls and lap blankets are made available in Mary’s Corner.

Respect Life

It is our mission to foster in our parish community, an awareness of the dignity and sanctity of all human life, from conception to natural death. 

We observe and promote The Magisterial Teaching of the Roman Catholic Church. We bring awareness to and inform on life issues including abortion, euthanasia, infanticide, assisted suicide, stem cell research, and aborted-fetal-cell-dependent biomedical research.


Our foundational focus is to advocate for the right to life of the most innocent, vulnerable, voiceless, and defenseless of all human life, which is the life of the unborn baby.

St. Vincent de Paul

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul is a Catholic lay organization that leads women and men to join together to grow spiritually by offering person-to-person service to those who are needy and suffering, in the tradition of its founder, Blessed Frederic Ozanam, and patron, St. Vincent de Paul. Organized locally, Vincentians witness God’s love by embracing all works of charity and justice. The Society collaborates with other people of good will in relieving need and addressing its causes, making no distinction in those served because in them, Vincentians see the face of Christ.

Faith In Action Ministry

Serving Christ with Love and Justice

Our mission as a ministry and as a parish is simple. We are called to love God, serve those in need, work for justice and peace, love our neighbors, and promote the sanctity of all human life and the dignity of each person. We do so by supporting the needs of the poor and vulnerable in our community, promoting solidarity by learning to practice the virtue of “loving our neighbor,” proclaiming the sanctity of human life and the inherent dignity of the human person, and educating the St. Edward the Confessor parish community on the Church’s long tradition of Catholic Social teaching.

Meetings are currently held on Zoom every second Tuesday of the Month
