St. Edna Community Table

The St. Edna Outreach to the Poor Ministry has a formed a subsidiary ministry called St. Edna Community Table to welcome and serve all who seek nourishment and fellowship

“For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me” Matthew 25:35

The first summer of providing dinners once/month (in conjunction with other Arlington Heights area churches) was hosted by the St. Edna Community Table Team in 2014. For the summer seasons of 2015 through 2018, we hosted dinners twice/month on the first and third Sunday evenings.  We warmly welcomed other St. Edna parish ministry groups to sponsor the dinners.  We are doing the same this year.  This was a wonderful way for our parish community to reach out in service to those who are less fortunate.

We ask for continued prayers as this ministry grows. If you would like more information about St. Edna Community Table or if you know of a family in need who would benefit from this ministry, please contact the Parish Office or by email:
