Fundraiser to Benefit St. Edward's Pantry!
Jillian Hooey, a lector at St. Edward's Sunday evening Masses, is an avid nature enthusiast and photographer who creates note cards from her beautiful images. Jillian has kindly created a fundraiser to benefit St. Edward’s Food Pantry, with proceeds from her cards going to St. Edward. If you’d like to see her work and take part, visit https://www.jillianhooey.com
In the past, Jillian printed her nature photos onto notecards to benefit Seatuck, a local nature preservation organization. In 2019, she raised more than $1,300 for the organization.
We are grateful for Jillian’s willingness to share her gifts and talents to benefit our pantry, which is actively helping our neighbors in need in our community and at other parishes on Long Island! Take a look at her site. These cards make an uplifting gift or provide the perfect place to write a note to a friend of loved one.
Face Mask Fundraiser for our Food Pantry
Haili (parent of two boys from our Troop 205) is offering face masks at two price ranges (2 for $15 and floral patterns for $10 each). Haili is able to make them in Children’s small (fits 3-6 year old), children’s regular (fits 6-12 year old), adult regular which fits most adults, and adult XL for people with bigger facial structures. Photos shown here.
The prices are the same for all sizes, except the floral pattern in the second picture because of a very limited fabric supply. All the masks are machine washable, with an opening in the side for added filtration (insert a coffee filter or paper towel) if desired by the user.
All the proceeds of Haili's face masks go towards purchases of fresh produce for our pantry. To make a purchase text Haili at (516)668-1730. The masks will be mailed to you by USPS two at a time. Use Venmo at (516)668-1730 for contactless transaction.
If anyone has new cotton flat bed sheets, Haili is interested in buying them or accepting as donation.
Thank you for your support!

St. Edward's PSM is continuing to operate and serve people with food and basic household items, and in any way that it can.

Clients have been picking up their items at the panty at scheduled times, to carefully maintain social distancing. If you have any questions or concerns, please call the number above.
VOLUNTEERS: Several people have kindly volunteered to assist. At this time, we aren't in need of volunteers. However, if the need arises and you are willing to help, please leave your name and phone number at the pantry office at (516) 921-8030, ext. 140 along with a brief message.
PANTRY NEEDS: Food and household items are needed. If you have any extra or are willing to purchase additional items when you shop, that would be great! Items can be left in the Church vestibule, which is open during daytime hours. Some suggested items: pasta, pasta sauce, tuna fish, hand soap, canned fruits and vegetables, toilet paper, paper towels.
In addition, financial donations specifically for Parish Social Ministry can be mailed to

Thank you so much for your continuous support. You remain in our prayers.
HOW CAN I HELP OUR PARISH?
Thank you to all of our parishioners for your prayers and continued support. Rest assured, you are in the prayers of our priests and deacons every day. Many people have reached out and asked how they can support St. Edward the Confessor Parish during these difficult times.
The coronavirus pandemic will continue to have a tremendous impact on all of our lives and will also affect parish collections -- the way parish pays bills and salaries throughout the year and maintains programs that are instrumental to so many -- for some time.
If you are able and so inclined, your envelopes and donations can be mailed to St. Edward Church (205 Jackson Avenue, Syosset, NY 11791) or dropped in the Rectory door mail slot (although we aren’t encouraging anyone to go out.) In addition, there is a form available in recent parish bulletins online which can be completed and mailed to the Rectory to register for automatic donations. CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD THE FORM
Our Parish Social Ministry is up and running, with clients picking up food at scheduled times to maintain social distancing.
