Welcome Seminarian Jiha Lim! Bishop Murphy has asked St. Edward's Parish to host a
seminarian, Jiha Lim, for eight weeks in our parish. This past September Rockville Centre
seminarians were sent to St. Joseph's Seminary in Dunwoodie, New York. The program
at that Seminary calls for seminarians to receive pastoral experience each summer. We
are happy to host Jiha here at St. Edward.
Jiha is a Korean American who came to the United States from Seoul, Korea with his
parents and older sister, when he was 11 years old. He lived in Roslyn Heights, Valley
Stream, and Fresh Meadows. Jiha and his family are parishioners of the Korean Community
that worships at Holy Name of Jesus in Woodbury. As a seminarian at Immaculate Conception
Center in Douglaston, Jiha graduated from Queens College with a degree in Philosophy last
year. He has now completed his first year of Theology at St. Joseph's Seminary. During his
time with us he will be living in the rectory and he will be involved with all our parish activities.
Brick Walkway Dedication
On Saturday, May 18th, after the 5 pm Mass, the newly constructed brick commemorative walkway around the flag pole on Teibrook Avenue will be dedicated. The ceremony will include the unveiling and blessing of the walkway, the raising of the flag, and the reading of the names on the bricks. Afterwards there will be a wine and cheese reception. All are welcome!
Forms will be available to order additional bricks for the walkway, as a way of commemorating special persons and events.
School Board Elections
The St. Edward School Board Election will take place this weekend. There are four candidates for four positions. Biographies of the candidates can be read on the school website: stedwardconfessor.org. If you would like to vote, please just bring a completed ballot to the rectory or the vestibule after Mass this weekend. You will be asked to sign a sign-in sheet and submit your ballot. Thank you to those who have volunteered to run and serve, and to all those who will take the time to vote.
A week from Monday is Memorial Day. The 9 am Mass that day will be a Mass for Peace, at which we will remember the troops who gave their lives in the cause of freedom. The Syosset Memorial Day Parade will begin right after the Mass and you are welcome to view the parade along Jackson Avenue.
