Welcome to our parish ministries! If God is calling you or if you want to get involved in parish ministry, scroll below to learn more about the opportunities at St. Edwards.
Although priests from Riverside came to Corona as early as 1887 to celebrate mass at a "preaching station," (private home), it was almost 20 years before the parish was established as a mission parish in 1896.
Fr. J.M. McCarthy built the first church, named after St. John the Baptist and dedicated in 1898 by Bishop Montgomery of the Diocese of Los Angeles. Established as a parish in 1908, it received its first resident pastor, Fr. William Power, the following year.
Fr. Clarence Kimmons replaced the original building with a "stone" church twenty years later. At its dedication in 1919, the name was changed to St. Edward, the Confessor.
The mission and motivation of this ministry is love. The community in today's world lives a life of high intense Christian Values. This ministry shares their gifts with others and uses them to glory God by helping each other to grow profoundly in God. They focus on sharing their Godly experiences with others and the world with the power of the Holy Spirit.

The mission of the Knights of Columbus is to provide members and their families with volunteer opportunities in service to the Catholic Church, their communities’ families and young people. The Knights of Columbus has numerous volunteer service programs that will let you help us share the Experience…
In Service to the Church
Knights are the ‘strong right arm’ of their local parishes. They help with tasks and special projects that require both the financial and manpower based resources that the Knights can provide.
In Serving the Community
Knights, pray for and show support for their local police, fire and emergency personnel. They also sponsor and support food drives and fund drives to raise money for charity.
For the Good of the Council
Councils hold activities that foster fraternal bonds between members, allow for networking opportunities and building leadership skills in members that lead to professional success. Council service programs are designed on a council to council basis to conduct projects that suit both the needs of the community and the interest of the membership.
For the Family
Councils sponsor social functions that are open to members and their families. Councils conduct several events every year ranging from movie night to holiday parties and barbecue events.

Our mission is based on Matthew 25:35 “For I was hungry and you have me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink.”
We hope to eliminate hunger in our community, and beyond if possible. We do this in the Holy name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Amen
