Fire Across from St. Patrick’s Parish
Late last night a devastating fire occurred at the Edge 2 and Edge 3 apartment buildings. The fire continues to burn and all street access to the buildings and to St Patrick’s parish remain CLOSED.
The entire Edge apartment building has been evacuated and thanks to the local community, all those affected have been cared for. Our own parishioners who reside in Edge have also moved to family and friends’ homes.
What can you do? Offer prayers – please pray for all the residents who have been displaced. Pray for our local firefighters and officials. And pray that our local community rallies around this unfortunate situation to restore what has been lost.
We have already been overwhelmed by messages from our parish community, offering to help. At this time we are coordinating our efforts and seeking to understand the full extent of what is needed. As such – while you may be ready to help with food, clothing, donations, etc.. – we ask you to pause on your generosity until we are able to receive and distribute help to those affected.
We will continue to provide updates on our Facebook pages and website; however if you wish to contribute to any support efforts that we are able to organize, please join this mailing list.
