Joseph Gorman Council #5091
A unified body of Catholic women who work together to make a difference by touching hearts and changing lives.
Formed more than 100 years ago, The Catholic Daughters of the Americas is one of the oldest and largest organizations of Catholic women in the Americas. The CDA motto is “Unity and Charity.” Members work together for their parish, donate to charities, administer scholarship programs and strive “to be helping hands where there is pain, poverty, sorrow or sickness.” St. Edward’s CDA members meet monthly and host several events and activities throughout the year to help them fulfill the CDA Mission. To join, contact the Rectory. All are welcome.
Service, socialization, and sharing our faith are all part of St. Edward’s Men’s Club. New members are always welcomed. Monthly meetings. Guest speakers. Meetings and special events are announced in the bulletin.
Social gathering for ladies of all ages with a common interest in promoting sociability, education, spirituality, and charity. Meetings are the third Thursday of the month in the Holy Family Room at 10 AM. Announcements are in the bulletin. Join us at any time. No dues or applications.
Volunteers crochet and knit prayer shawls and lap blankets that are available at the Rectory, Pantry, Anointing of the Sick Masses, Cold Spring Hills Nursing Home, and Mercy Hospital. Shawls and blankets are free of charge. The Purls meet once a month.
Yarn donations are appreciated.
Volunteers come together to beautify our Church for various liturgies and services throughout the year, including Christmas and Easter. Helpers are always needed. If you want to become involved, leave your name and phone number in the Rectory.
The Holy Father in December had announced that 2021 is The Year of Saint Joseph. St. Joseph was a worker, devoted husband to Mary, a father figure to Jesus, and provides us with a great example of what a man should strive to be. Like Joseph, Sons and Fathers in Christ must always strive to deepen their faith in the Lord. Let us answer the call to prayer by coming together with total trust and faith by praying the Rosary and the Chaplet of the Divine Mercy. The St. Joseph's Prayer Group is meeting every Thursday night, starting on February 18, 2021 at 8:00 pm in the Church. Prayer pamphlets for how to pray the Rosary and Divine Chaplet will be made available to everyone.
The SEC Enrichment Committee plans and hosts several guest speakers for the benefit of our parishioners and the surrounding community. Topics vary and have included “Wills, Trusts, & Estate Planning for Everyone,” “Tax Planning for Today & Tomorrow,” and “Prepare, Respond & Recover: What to Do When Disaster Strikes.”
Call the rectory for information.
This annual event is sponsored by our local Knights of Columbus Joseph J. Gorman #5091 Council. This four day event, generally held in August in the Long Island Railroad parking lot in Syosset, is fun for the whole family and relies on the generosity of volunteers, local businesses, parish groups, and the Syosset community to make it a success. See the bulletin for details closer to the event.
Our “Celebrate the Spirit” annual barbecue brings together the generations for an afternoon of delicious food, great music, raffles, and fun & games for our younger parishioners. This joyful celebration is usually scheduled after 11:30 AM Mass on a Sunday in late June. Plenty of volunteers are needed. Get involved by contacting the rectory and leaving your name and number.

Michael T. Maffeo, Pastor; Deacon James Murphy; Jo Ann Bonasera; Kathy DeNatale; David Krieg; and Donna Zaino
