Welcome to Ss. Edward & Isidore
The parish community seeks to provide an awareness and understanding of faith in God and the purpose of life. We are committed to the proclamation of the Word of God, the formation of Christian community and the reaching out to all in times of sorrow, joy and need. We invite all to discover, share and celebrate their unique gifts.
Encouraged by our longstanding history of over one hundred years of faith and praying together, and drawn by a warm and friendly spirit, we will continue to be a visible sign of Christ to the people in the Flintville area and beyond.
Ss. Edward & Isidore has been blessed with people who are willing to work together for the common good. We have an active Parish Council with many active committees. The parish provides formational programs for all members, pre-school through adult. Important priorities of the parish are its liturgy, prayer life, the care of the sick, and a response to the needs of the community.
Our goal today is to provide every parishioner with the opportunity to share time, talent and treasure to continue to make Ss. Edward & Isidore an alive, caring community.
King Edward (1002-1065) was the last king of the Anglo-Saxons. He lived a life of prayer and virtue amidst corrupt surroundings. His first efforts as king were to govern his people with Christian ideals and to renew in their hearts a love for their religion. Edward also assisted many churches and monasteries. He invited priests to come to serve in his kingdom. Thus we are blessed with the name of one who models for us Christian leadership and a deepening of faith among the community.
Isidore(1070-1130) is the patron of farmers and rural communities. As a young boy he worked the land of a wealthy landowner. Even behind the plow, his deep faith kept him in constant awareness of God. On holidays he visited the churches of Spain to the distress of his fellow workers. Isidore's concern for the poor is known from the stories of miraculous supplies of food. He was also known for his love and care of animals. Thus, one who had a love and care for land and animals now shares with us a love of nature.
