Cinco de Mayo with Edwina

On May 5th, our Wellness Services presented a contemplative day with Edwina Gateley titled "In God's Womb: Your Soul Journey With God."

If you have never heard her you're in for a thrill someday. She is the Energizer bunny when she speaks of the things of God and shares her life story and ministry with her audience. Lots of fun and lots of sincerity and passion for the "soul's journey."

Forty-eight sisters, oblates and guests celebrated Cinco de Mayo with her and our own dynamic Wellness Coordinator--who would take a backseat to no one when it comes to creativity, energy and uniqueness!

A Cinco de Mayo self-made lunch was woven right into the presentations. All reports are that it was a creative delight--an unforgettable experience for all.

Edwina, an author, dynamic retreat director, national speaker and spirituality leader (I wonder if she's ever been billed as a motivational speaker?!), and a Mom moved to Erie about 12 years ago. We see her now and then at our Sunday liturgies particularly around holidays when she is home from her busy schedule "on the road."

Did I forget to mention that she's British? So in addition to all the enthusiasm for her message, it's delivered in that accent we Americans seem to love!
