St. Edward's is now open for in-person Mass at a limited capacity on Saturdays at 4:00 PM and Sundays at 11:00 AM. We will also continue to offer our live-streamed Mass on Saturdays which can then be viewed at any time. The opportunity to receive the Eucharist in the parking lot at 5:00 PM on Saturdays and 10:30 AM on Sundays will also continue. We are now open for in-person Mass at 9:00 AM on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday in the church. We are also offering the Sacrament of Reconciliation at 3:00 PM in the parlor.
Each family will need to fill out a new health attestation form each time you come to Weekend Mass. We ask that you print and complete this form at home to help everything move smoothly when you arrive. You can find the required form above or by clicking here.
Each family will also need to register for Mass by clicking the link above or by clicking here. Be sure to indicate the number of people who will be attending, including yourself, under the quantity tab. This is extremely important in order to enable us to monitor the capacity for each Mass.

If you can, I ask you to continue your weekly/monthly support of St. Edward’s Parish through Faith Direct
Some of our parishioners and others in our local area who are in severe financial stress have contacted us about their ability to pay their bills at this time. All of us are concerned about how long this crisis will last. I and the parish Finance Committee are concerned as well. Our parish still has financial commitments to meet as well as an increased need for community and parish outreach. If you are in a position to do so, I ask you to continue your weekly/monthly support of St. Edward’s parish. This can be by contributing through Faith Direct, our electronic giving resource, or by mailing your contributions to the parish: St. Edward the Confessor R.C. Church, 569 Clifton Park Center Road, Clifton Park, NY 12065. If you would like to learn more about Faith Direct click here.
We Will Be Live Streaming Mass at 11:00 AM on Sundays & An Hour of Prayer and Meditation on Wednesday Nights
Many of you have asked if we will have a live-streamed Mass on the weekends. We have worked hard to be able to bring Mass to you at home. Each Sunday at 11:00 AM Mass will be streamed through YouTube. We will also have a live stream of the church with gentle music playing each Wednesday night at 6:00 PM. We encourage you to view our stream through Youtube and take a few minutes in this hard and stressful time to pray and meditate. You can find the St. Edward's Youtube page here. Be sure to subscribe and hit the bell icon to be notified when we post a new video or go live. Due to Diocesan policy, the building will not be unlocked during these times. All live-streams will be recorded and will be uploaded to Youtube to be watched at a later time as well.
Please Support One Another, Especially Our Isolated And Infirmed
We are a large parish. As always, we ask that you check in on one another, especially with those who are isolated or infirmed. It is important during this time to not be socially isolated. We need to encourage and support one another and lift each others’ spirits. Please inform us of anyone you know who has a particular need that has to be met. You can call Mary Ann Sekellick at 518-371-7372, x224, or Fr. Pat at 518-371-7372 x225.
