WELCOME TO THE CHURCH OF
SAINT EDWARD THE CONFESSOR LUGANO
At St Edward's we know that inspiration opens hearts. An open heart is an open mind and an open mind is one that can practice tolerance, experience gratitude and feel the glory of God. It is our belief that God is present in all of us, but his active presence can only be felt through faith in him.
We are dedicated to the service of God and all his people, and our goal is to inspire you through the holiness of our dwelling and our services. We invite you to become a part of our growing congregation.
