Grafitti at St. Edward....

 

 

 

 

 

Before cleanup...                                                                        After cleanup...

 

UPDATE: A grafitti removal company has completed work on removing the oil based paint from the walls and floors. A glass company has been contacted to replace the broken glass panels. At this time, monetary donations to help defray the cost for cleanup and repair would be greatly appreciated. Please remit donations to St. Edward Parish. A myEoffering category, Special Collection - Cleanup, has been made specfically to designate funds for this effort. Thank you!

 

ALPHA - Adult Faith Formation Group

We would like to invite the parishioners of our South Seattle Parish Cluster to participate in our new adult faith formation group, Alpha. Alpha is a place to explore the Catholic faith with others.  It is a low pressure environment to discuss the big questions in life. 

Every Alpha session has four key ingredients: a shared meal*, a video from Alpha with the topic of the week, and small group sharing.  Participants are encouraged to honestly share what they think and believe without judgement.

The fourth key element are special participants.  They are not a part of the physical group, but commit to pray for the group and their special intentions. This group participates via prayer alone.

(*all food will be prepared and served, per COVID protocols.  We will wear masks and social distance, as best we can.)

This will not be a class, but hopefully will encourage us to share with each other and grow in our faith, with no right or wrong answers, but accepting of everyone as they are and where they are in their faith journey. We thought we needed to offer something to reinvigorate our parish cluster.  Hopefully there will be more Alpha groups after the first one. 

Alpha begins on Mondays, October 4, at St. George, in the St. Francis room, 6:30-8:30 until December 13.  We will have one weekend away in November.

You are invited to bravely join us in our first Alpha group.  We will learn as we go.  Invite a friend to join!

We are asking everyone to pray for the Alpha participants, organizers, and for the sharing we do in our small groups.  If you cannot participate in Alpha, pray for us!

We also need helpers, please!  We need folks to set up, be welcome greeters, host a small group, organize, serve food, clean up, etc.  We will have a training for all Alpha volunteers on Monday September 20 and 27, 6:30-8:30, in the St. Francis room.  Hosting a small group is about encouraging folks to share, but does not require lots high level skills. 

Peace,
Patty Jean and Tony

Faith Formation 2021-2022

First Reconciliation and First Communion Preparation Information

First Communion includes preparation for First Reconciliation. Parents and children will gather together every first Saturday of the month (10/2/21, 11/6/21, 12/4/21, 2/5/22, 3/5/22, 4/2/22, 5/7/22) at 10 am. We will celebrate our First Communions on the May 14/15, 2022 weekend at all the parishes during the weekend Masses. The plan is to share the teacher manual with each parent and they will teach their children the six lessons for First Reconciliation in the fall. The children will then sign up to go to receive their First Reconciliation at one of the regularly scheduled confession times or a Lenten Penance service. The parents will then be given another book with six chapters regarding First Holy Communion. After the sessions in February, March and April, the children will receive their First Communion at any one of the eight Masses in the four parishes on the weekend of May 14 & 15, 2022. If your child is a baptized Catholic and in grade two or older you may want to consider the Sacraments of Reconciliation and First Communion.

There is a fee of $100.00 to cover the materials for the program.

This fee helps cover the cost of books, materials and other program-related fees, but if anyone has a problem covering the costs there are scholarships available. Please speak with the Office Coordinator if you need assistance or would like to set up a payment plan. We do not want anyone to refrain from the sacraments or from the preparation program due to financial difficulties.

You will need to provide a copy of your child’s Baptismal certificate with this registration. All information on this form must be provided even if the child is living with just one parent.

 

Confirmation Information

Confirmation this year will be offered to all young people in Seventh grade and older. We will offer classes once a month on the fourth Sunday (9/26, 10/24, 11/28, 12/19, 1/23, 2/27, 3/27, 4/24, & 5/22) at 2:30 pm (right after the Spanish Mass) at St. Edward. In addition, the young people will be asked to attend a Confirmation Retreat (a one day for Middle Schoolers and a two day for High Schoolers). We don’t know the dates of the two retreats yet, but will let you know as soon as we do. This program is meant for the young people only, but parents and sponsors will be asked to attend at least one session (most likely in the winter).

Registration Fee: $150.00/Child

This fee helps cover the cost of books, materials, a Confirmation Retreat and other program-related fees, but if anyone has a problem covering the costs there are scholarships available. Please speak with the Office Coordinator if you need assistance or would like to set up a payment plan. We do not want anyone to refrain from the sacraments or from the preparation program due to financial difficulties.

Information Form for RCIA for Children

                The Children’s Catechumenate (also called RCIA for children) is a year-round process of preparation for children seven years old and older who are not baptized. The church believes that when children reach the “age of reason” at seven, they are capable of making the decision to be baptized themselves. Therefore, the church offers this educational and formative process to help them on that journey. We will be offering classes every other Sunday during the school year (maybe a couple times next summer) and throughout the coming year to prepare them to be fully initiated (Baptism, Confirmation and First Communion) at the Easter Vigil in 2023.

Registration Fee: $100.00/Child (for a two year program)

This fee helps cover the cost of books, materials and other program-related fees, but if anyone has a problem covering the costs there are scholarships available. Please speak with the Office Coordinator if you need assistance or would like to set up a payment plan. We do not want anyone to refrain from the sacraments or from the preparation program due to financial difficulties.

You will need to provide a copy of your child’s Birth certificate with this registration.

Celebraremos nuestras Primeras Comuniones el fin de semana del 14 al 15 de mayo de 2022 en todas las parroquias durante las misas de fin de semana. El plan es compartir el manual del maestro con cada padre y ellos enseñarán a sus hijos las seis lecciones para la Primera Reconciliación en el otoño. Luego, los niños se inscribirán para recibir su Primera Reconciliación en uno de los horarios de confesión programados regularmente o en un servicio de penitencia de Cuaresma. A los padres se les entregará otro libro con seis capítulos sobre la Primera Comunión. Después de las sesiones de febrero, marzo y abril, los niños recibirán su Primera Comunión en cualquiera de las ocho misas en las cuatro parroquias el fin de semana del 14 y 15 de mayo de 2022. o mayores, tal vez desee considerar los sacramentos de la reconciliación y la primera comunión.

Hay una tarifa de $ 100.00 para cubrir los materiales del programa.

La Confirmación

Este año se ofrecerá la confirmación a todos los jóvenes de séptimo grado en adelante. Ofreceremos clases una vez al mes el cuarto domingo (9/26, 10/24, 11/28, 12/19, 1/23, 2/27, 3/27, 4/24 y 5/22) a las 2:30 pm (justo después de la misa en español) en San Eduardo. Además, se les pedirá a los jóvenes que asistan a un Retiro de Confirmación (un día para estudiantes de Jr. High y dos días para estudiantes de Sr. High). Aún no sabemos las fechas de los dos retiros, pero te lo haremos saber tan pronto como lo sepamos. Este programa está destinado únicamente a los jóvenes, pero se les pedirá a los padres y patrocinadores que asistan al menos a una sesión (lo más probable es que sea en invierno).

RICA para niños/jovenes

El Catecumenado de Niños (también llamado RICA para niños) es un proceso de preparación durante todo el año para niños de siete años en adelante que no están bautizados. La iglesia cree que cuando los niños alcanzan la “edad de razón” a los siete años, son capaces de tomar la decisión de bautizarse ellos mismos. Por eso, la iglesia ofrece este proceso educativo y formativo para ayudarlos en ese camino. Ofreceremos clases cada otro domingo durante el año escolar (tal vez un par de veces el próximo verano) y durante el próximo año para prepararlos para que se inicien por completo (Bautismo, Confirmación y Primera Comunión) en la Vigilia Pascual en 2023.

Cuota de inscripción: $ 100.00 / Niño (por un programa de dos años)

Esta tarifa ayuda a cubrir el costo de libros, materiales y otras tarifas relacionadas con el programa, pero si alguien tiene problemas para cubrir los costos, hay becas disponibles. Hable con el coordinador de la oficina si necesita ayuda o le gustaría establecer un plan de pago. No queremos que nadie se abstenga de los sacramentos ni del programa de preparación debido a dificultades económicas.

Deberá proporcionar una copia del certificado de nacimiento de su hijo con este registro.
