Parish & Family Life

Parish Life seeks to build fellowship among our parishioners and the larger community. Opportunities to do this often involve food and socials. What better way to reach out than by gathering around a table as Jesus did with his friends to discuss his mission? We can best build God's kingdom by first coming together as a community in joy and concern for each other.
Please consider becoming a part of volunteer opportunities as they occur. In the fall, we have St. Edward Weekend events, breakfasts and dinners throughout the year, and numerous receptions around the sacrament celebrations.

Knights of Columbus

St. Edward’s Council #6546 was founded in 1974.

Ladies Auxilary

All ladies are cordially invited to join our group in fellowship!
The Ladies Auxiliary of Knights of Columbus Council #6546 meet in fellowship to support each other, conduct fundraisers to benefit our various charities, and to support the Knights of Columbus and our parish community in many of their endeavors.
The Auxiliary is open to all interested Christian women. The meetings are held on the first Tuesday of every month (September to June) in Classroom AB at 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM. The business meeting is followed by social time with refreshments.
Annually, we have special fundraisers such as our Italian Pasta Night in January. All proceeds from Auxiliary fundraisers go directly to our various charities or St. Edward the Confessor Church and/or St. Edward/Epiphany Catholic School. A list of charities is available upon written request. The Auxiliary also helps organizations and families with special needs upon written request and submission.

Hospitality Reception Team

Can you be part of our Funeral/Funeral Reception Team? This group is made up of compassionate individuals who provide a much needed service to comfort the grieving families who request hospitality following a funeral liturgy. Especially needed are individuals who can provide food or their time to serve during weekend or evening funerals. For details, please call Anita, 864-4712. Also, parishioners volunteer on an as-needed basis to assist families before liturgy and provide support to grieving families. Coordinator will contact you when there is a need.


Our library offers books, music, DVDs, videos and even audiobooks! Don't know what movies to watch with your family? Check out our offerings. Our mission is to help our parishioners grow in their faith, knowledge, and love of God by providing books, audiobooks, DVDs, and music CDs to inspire, teach, and entertain.
Library resources may deal directly with topics such as the Church and its teachings, parenting, peer pressures, coping with grief and other challenges in life. They may deal indirectly with these topics by telling stories of individuals who are faced with difficult situations, but choose not to be mastered by them, but rather to struggle for what is right and good.
Would you like to help? Volunteers are always welcomed. Please call or text Kate Willoughby (804) 450-1718 or Barbara Banyasz (804) 921-1566.

Cursillo is a ministry that began in the Roman Catholic Church and has since spread to other Christian denominations. It was founded in Majorca, Spain by a group of laymen in 1944, while they were refining a technique to train pilgrimage leaders. The cursillo method focuses on training lay people to become effective leaders over the course of a three-day weekend. The weekend includes fifteen talks, some given by priests and some by lay people. One emphasis of the weekend is on preparing those undergoing it to take the movement's methods back into the world, on what they call the "fourth day".
The Men's Cursillo meeting is scheduled every Sunday Afternoon at 2:00pm in Classrooms A/B.
The Women's Cursillo meeting is scheduled every Monday evening at 7:00pm in the Church Library.
