Dear Parishioners of St. Edwin Parish,The Easter Season offers us fifty days of pascal joy, culminating with the feast of Pentecost. It is a time to reflect on the resurrection of the dead to glory for all those who remain faithful to the Gospel message. Daily Mass attendants are treated to a reading of almost the entirety of the Acts of the Apostles, showing the spread of the early Christian Church. And as our farm and ranch take shape this spring, we are reminded of the life and newness promised us though Christ. Fr. Peter

One of the joys of our faith is to welcome a child into the Catholic family through this sacrament. Baptisms are held at the 11:00am Mass on the second or third Sunday of each month outside the time of Lent. Parents are invited to call the office for an appointment to begin preparations for the baptism of their child.
Baptism is the ¨door¨ to salvation, the first of the sacraments, and the starting point for our way of life.Below we provide some opening information accordingto age. Feel free to contact the office for further assistance!
Dear parents and young people,Welcome to our child and youth formation program!Sunday 11:00am Mass forms the core of all we do, and is the first and most important part of our program. Children age seven (second grade) through middle school attend our Wednesday evening instruction. They also meet for under an hour every second Sunday of the month after the 11:00am Mass. High school youth hold their meetings Thursday evenings, and gather every fourth Sunday after Mass.Two years is the time of preparation for Baptism, First Holy Communion and/or Confirmation, no matter which year one begins.Class for children Pre-K through 1st grade is also offered on Wednesdays. Thus we afford parents dropping off all their children together a brief moment of rest during the week! Note, however, that this is not considered part of the two-year formation program for First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion. These begin at age seven. For more information call or visit our office, or send a note to:
The Rite of Christian Initiation, by which one becomes a member of the household of the faith (in the words of St. Paul), is a multifaceted program. It begins with a time of discernment and seeking. From there one enters into the period of formal instruction, called the Catechumenate. It is a blessed moment in one’s life, where the truths and practices of the faith are communicated, and life of the local Catholic Christian community gradually becomes one’s own. This preparation looks toward reception of Baptism, and with it Confirmation and Holy Eucharist, together comprising the three Sacraments of Initiation. All this takes place at the Easter Vigil, destined to be one of the most powerful moments in the life of the Catholic Christian. Our times of instruction take place Sunday mornings. Feel free to call or visit the office, or email us at ReligiousEd@stedwinabq.com. We look forward to hearing from you!
Clearing out thousands of yards of dirt over two acres, to bring the field down to the acequia water line.
Clearing the trench on our property to channel the water from the acequia.

The ladies always ready to help.
On October 12, 2016, the Feast of Saint King Edwin of Northumbria, our parish opened the floodgates of our neighboring “acequia” to irrigate our first restored field. Acequia means “that which brings water.” It refers to the network of irrigation canals transporting water to farmers throughout the region. A representative of the Middle Rio Grande Conservancy was present to open the channel, allowing the water to flood our field. Many thanks to all who made this possible, and to those present for the event!
