We are a fellowship of believers that meets in the Historic Third Ward and actively ministers to the surrounding neighborhoods, downtown, and the nearby college campuses. We are a part of the JAFC within the Anglican Church in North America (ACNA).
St. Edmund’s is modeled as a traditional Anglican parish church that is a connected and integrated part of the community of Milwaukee. A visible community through our people and clergy: one that is active in building relationships, ministering to people in need, building fellowship, and being visibly part of the Milwaukee community and its activities. Our neighbors should know we are here for them and our desire to minister and be part of their lives.
A Hymn for St. Edmund the Martyr
O Jesu, King of martyrs, who for our sins didst die;
Hear Thou the praise we offer Before Thy throne on high;
For Thou art our Redeemer, the Crown of all They saints,
The Light that never fadeth, the Strength that never faints.
For all the might and courage, for all the grace divine
Shown forth in blessed Edmund who gave his life for Thine;
Our love and thanks we render on this his festal day;
O Savior ever-glorious, accept our grateful lay.
He bravely bore the tortures inflicted by his foes,
And o’er them all in triumph his patient spirit rose;
He left an earthly kingdom a heavenly crown to gain,
With Thee, the King of Glory, for evermore to reign.
In that celestial country where joys eternal flow,
His spirit resteth ever secure from every foe;
Now may he pray, dear Saviour, that we may faithful be
And after this life’s conflict receive a crown from Thee.
To Thee, O mighty Monarch, be ceaseless songs addressed,
Who reignest with the Father and with the Spirit blest;
Grant us with Thy redeemed ones upon the eternal shore,
To yield Thee highest homage and praise for evermore.
Written by William Edgar Enman for St. Edmund’s Milwaukee
