Mrs. Rands Retires | A fond farewell!

Posted on January 30, 2014


Dear St. Edward the Confessor Parish School Faculty/Staff/Parent Community:

I am happy and excited to announce my retirement at the end of this school year.  After thirty five plus years in education, I have decided to enter into another chapter of my life.  I have been truly blessed during my seven years at St. Edward the Confessor Parish School.

Over the past seven years, we have established a school that is rich academically, spiritually and athletically.  Our students are some of the best prepared students in Orange County and in the Diocese of Orange.  Our Parish School has been blessed in so many ways by your talents and contributions.  We would not be the proud school we are without your efforts, passion and support of Catholic Education.

I know that our Parish School will continue along this path and its’ legacy will be strong.   I look forward to hearing about all the wonderful achievements that will certainly come your way.

I hope that our paths will cross sometime and someplace.  I wish all of you God’s blessings.  You all have been a blessing to me and I thank you for all that you have done.

“What we need is to love without getting tired.  How does a lamp burn? Through the continuous input of small drops of oil.  What are these drops of oil in our lamps?  They are the small things of daily life:  faithfulness, small words of kindness, a thought Jesus away from yourselves.  He is not out there; He is in you.  Keep your lamp burning, for others, our way of being silent, of looking, of speaking, and of acting.  Do not look for and you will recognize Him” .  

– Mother Teresa

God’s Blessings,

Sharon A. Rands

Gleaning For God | November 23, 2013

Posted on September 21, 2013



“Gleaning” dates back to Old Testament days. Farmers left corners of their acreage for widows & orphans to harvest, thereby giving them enough food so they wouldn’t starve through the long winter months.  What better way to celebrate our Thankfulness to God for His abundance, while teaching our youngsters to care for others who have less.

Saturday, November 23, 2013 from 8 – 11:30 a.m.

Meet at St. Edward the Confessor in Dana Point at 8 a.m. for informative meeting/prayer, then carpool to a local field to glean (pick crops) from 9 -11 a.m.  We’ll return back to St. Edward by 11:30 a.m.  Space is limited; sign up soon & get your family “on the list.”

Please call Gloria Fetta, Director of Catechetical Ministries, at (949) 481-0882 or email  Further details will be given out to those who respond. God bless you!
