Sunday Mass Stream

For those of you who can't attend mass on any given weekend, I usually post a live stream from CatholicTV's Massachusetts chapel or the DC Shrine of the Basilica on Sunday, once it's been posted to their website. 

Watch daily Catholic Mass celebrated for Sunday, September 24, 2023, from CatholicTV's Chapel of the Holy Cross by Father Tom Macdonald.

SCHOOL STORE PURCHASING: Sept 18th-Oct 6th is the time for making purchases to help with our school fundraiser. This link takes you to our school store site. You may order directly from it, however the products are more expensive. The BEST way for us to receive money is for you to click the MERCHANTS TAB at the top and scroll down to find the participating merchants. When you order from these merchants online, St Edward School receives a percentage of the sales. This is a great way to begin your holiday shopping, while also helping out our school. Thanks! 

**Just a reminder that there are two programs which provide much needed funds for our School at no additional cost to each of us. Box Tops for Education and Snappy Tomato pizza give us $$$ back for purchases we make every day.
