Oblate John Edwards

Our Oblate brother John Edwards was born in Uxbridge, England in 1938.  As a registered nurse at Presbyterian Hospital in Albuquerque, New Mexico, John was also active in the Holy Rosary Catholic Community where he was an RCIA team member, a catechetical assistant in religious education, and played the organ for church liturgies, in the 1980’s.  

In 1995, John became a lay Associate at Santa Maria de la Vid Priory, where he was receptionist, executive assistant to the prior in development work and vocational coordinator.  On August 28, 1998, John was professed as the first American Norbertine Oblate.  He died Monday, March 17, 2003 at the age of 64.  

If you have a photograph of this Norbertine, we would love to hear from you.
