St. Edward parishioners proclaim the Christian message

NEW FAIRFIELD—As the pastor of St. Edward the Confessor parish, I would like to publicly acknowledge the work that was done to create our new Christmas Nativity scene on the front lawn of our church. 

I would like to thank the members of the Blue Ribbon Committee and the Knights of Columbus for all their work in designing and building the structure that allows us to make a statement about the true meaning of Christmas. With the help of their architect, Peter Helmes, the Blue Ribbon Committee provided a set of blue prints for the design. The Knights of Columbus under the supervision of Pete Greco (Project Manager) and Rich Obarowski (Project Engineer) constructed and completed the Nativity set within 12 days to prepare for the coming of Christmas.  

I am continually amazed at the way the members of this community can come together to do good when inspired by a cause that they hold dear. May all of the work and sacrifice that went into completing this project inspire us top remember the true meaning of what we celebrate in this Holy Season—that God so loved the world that he sent us his only Son. With the angels, we too rejoice.
