We, the Parish Community of St. Edward the Confessor have as our mission to unite all of our families in Godï¿½s Name to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. We share our gifts through worship, education, fellowship, and community outreach, by joyfully facing the challenges of our neighborhood.
Catholics settled in Milford area in the late 1800s and early 1900s attended Mass at either St. John the Evangelist Church in Lambertville or St. Philip and St. James Church in Phillipsburg. From 1915 Sunday Mass was celebrated in the private homes in Milford by priests from Philipsburg. In 1922 with the larger congregation Mass was celebrated in a Silk Mill, and on July 14, Church of St. Edward the Confessor became an official Mission St. Philip and St. James Parish in Phillipsburg. Construction on the Spanish mission-style Church began in the spring of 1925 and the first Mass was celebrated on Christmas morning. A large wing was added to the Church in 1937. On June 14, 1944 St. Edward the Confessor became independent Parish.
O God, who called your servant Edward to an earthly throne that he might advance your heavenly kingdom, and gave him zeal for your Church and love for your people: Mercifully grant that we who commemorate him may be fruitful in good works, and attain to the glorious crown of your saints; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever.
