ST. EDWARD PARENTS CLUB
Welcome to St. Edward Parents Club! We are a group of dedicated parents who host special activities for mothers, fathers, and guardians of all Edsmen. Through fundraising and volunteering, we also support many school-sponsored events that benefit the young men of our school.
Parents Club 2021-2022 Events:
Prayer Chain - If you have a special prayer request, we invite you to post it in our private Facebook group so that we may lift you up in prayer.
