Brother Edwin entered the novitiate in June 2017, and lives in Venice, Florida with his furry companion Shadow. He is a retired elementary school teacher. Raised a Roman Catholic, but always searching for God in many places, Brother found his home as a founding member of SunCoast Cathedral MCC (Metropolitan Community Churches) in Venice. He is very active in all areas of ministry of the church,serves as a Deacon, and loves his denomination.
Searching for a way to walk closer to God, and work on Spirituality, he found the Ecumenical Order of Charity. Reading the Founding Document it spoke immediately to his soul and heart, and he knew he had found his second home.
