St. Edmunds Chapel

In order to observe a prayerful space, we ask that you please refrain from loud conversation in the hallway outside the chapel before the 9:30 service, and if conversation is necessary during the prelude, please speak very softly.


Next Sunday, September 1, the Reverend Martin Gutwein, father of parishioner Paul Gutwein, will preach and celebrate at the Parish Eucharist at 9:30am.


We will return to our regular service schedule on Sunday, September 8:

8am in the Chapel and 10am Choral Eucharist in the Church. ON THAT DAY:

  • The Altar Guild will have the September meeting at 9am in the Lounge.
  • Parish Choir returns with rehearsal in the Choir Room at 9am.
  • Registration for Sunday School will be in the Narthex. First day of Sunday School will be on September 15.


Backpacks and School Supplies! As in years past, we are seeking donations of School Supplies and Backpacks to donate to children in shelters. You may bring your donations and leave in the Narthex. The Backpacks will be blessed in the service on September 15.
