Title:DOES YOUR PARISH say "Yes, And"? | Fr. Edwin Leonard, Pastor of St. Ann Parish | Episode #023
The BeatiDudes welcome one of their favorite priests, Fr. Edwin Leonard, Pastor of St Ann Parish in Coppell, where the Dudes are parishioners with their families.
Fr. Edwin shares the spirit-led way in which St. Ann Parish encourages participation and receives each person with abundant hospitality. While describing St. Ann’s openness to new ideas, it becomes clear to the Dudes that St. Ann follows the first rule of improv – “Yes, and” – as that is part of their unique approach to ministry.
During Blessed are the Joke Makers, with 72 points on the line, the Dudes must address the question, “What is talked about at the pub,” as a new parent.
Fr. Edwin shares exciting updates about St. Ann Parish, including the new missionary institute, the addition of 2 new priests, and a church renovation to bring the tabernacle into the main sanctuary of the parish. He then reflects on the beauty of all types of worship, from the most traditional to the most charismatic.
Then during the TBD Question of the Day, the Dudes and Fr. Edwin reflect on a fight-or-flight moment from each of their lives.
And you won’t want to miss the most amazing reverse Simpsons ending during which Fr. Edwin is asked to sing Taylor Swift.
