WATERTOWN, Mass.(May 15, 2015) – On May 19th CatholicTV will welcome Haley Stewart to speak about the annual Edel Gathering, a social conference designed to refresh, renew and inspire Catholic moms. Co-founded by Hallie Lord and Jennifer Fulwiler, the Edel Gathering is meant to provide a place for Catholic mothers to socialize with like-minded women and renew their passion for the vocation of motherhood. Edel offers opportunities to foster a sense of sisterhood among women as well as spend a weekend free of stress, and full of fun. The founders were inspired to create this conference by Venerable Edel Quinn; who showed the necessity of having good times and laughter while living a Catholic life. Rachel Balducci who is a host on CatholicTV’s talk-show, “The Gist” is a scheduled speaker at the conference this year. The event will take place in July at The Francis Marion Hotel in Charleston South Carolina and tickets are on sale now. For more information please visit:  http://edelgathering.com/.
