Be a part of St. Edward’s LEGACY WALL – ORDER NOW FOR FALL INSTALLATION!
We established the Legacy Wall program to raise funds to update Buckley Hall (Gym) and to give people the opportunity to express their appreciation to St. Edward, recognize events and to memorialize loved ones. The first project that we hope to accomplish is the installation of a new Gym floor. It has been repaired many times through the years and now has passed the point of repair and needs replacement. Consider purchasing a personalized tile. Our goal is to have 100 orders for engraved tiles by early October. We currently have orders for more than 80 tiles. You can place an order online at www.bricksrus.com/order/sted or use an order form. Order forms are available in the back of church or at the Rectory Office.
