A friendly rural parish where              lambs and kid goats are the lawnmowers.
Dear Parishioners of St. Edwin, Easter, spring, and new life have merged together at the parish. Parishioners are busy seeding two fields with Brutus Tall Fescue, one of the newest generations of livestock forage. We will have to wait a year while the roots are being established before the animals start grazing on it. Other volunteers are planting a blend of New Mexico wildflowers around our old Prado Well. Last year we gave our bees sugar water from which they made a provisional honey; this year we hope to offer them nectar. Our seven sheep-ewes have all given birth to a total of eight lambs. We are waiting for our six goat-does to give birth in April. Then our children will do some milking and if all goes well make cheese. A meandering path is being constructed throughout the Prado where the processions of Palm Sunday, the Easter Vigil, our May Marian Day, and Corpus Christi can be held. Parishioners are enjoying use of their property. Many new teams are being formed at this moment and we are all learning how to work together as a group. Skills such as keeping to an established calendar, punctuality, responding to phone calls, texts, and emails, and honest communication of one’s concerns are all being developed. In this way Easter, spring, and new life touches each one of us. Fr. Peter
*By popular demand our Saturday vigil Mass now permanently begins at 4:00pm; confessions are therefore moved up to 2:45-3:45pm.
