Give Thanks for the Graces that God has Given Us

11-19-2017Rev. Scott Holmer

This Thursday our whole nation looks back on the year and gives thanks for the graces that God has given us. I am very thankful for your patience and understanding as I learn the ropes here at St. Edward’s. I am also thankful for our wonderful staff here. They have been so helpful in getting me acclimated to being a new administrator. I am also thankful for all the visiting clergy, the parish council and finance council members, the volunteers and ministers who help form our community here at St. Edward’s. I am particularly thankful to Cardinal Wuerl for sending me to this wonderful place.
