Union: US – Peter Edwards Named Presentation Prayer Center Director

The leadership team of the Union of the Presentation Sisters of the Blessed Virgin Mary recently appointed Peter Edwards as the executive director of the Presentation Prayer Center.

Located near the Red River at 1101 32 Avenue South in Fargo, the Prayer Center has been a sponsored ministry of the Presentation Sisters for 37 years. For many people in our area the Prayer Center has been a quiet place of healing and spiritual nourishment located within our busy city.

Edwards is a certified spiritual director and a licensed independent clinical social worker. In addition to providing spiritual direction at the Prayer Center for the past 14 years, Edwards also worked at Catholic Charities for 27 years as a counselor and in family life education. Most recently he has served as the president of the Presentation Prayer Center board.

Edwards lives in Fargo with his wife, Joan. They have four adult children and nine grandchildren.

Regarding his appointment, Edwards noted with enthusiasm, “I hope to utilize my training as a spiritual director, my experience at a social service agency and my passion for spiritual growth to help further the mission of the Prayer Center.”

Core services offered by the Prayer Center include the following: spiritual direction, individual retreats (including the 19th annotated Ignatian retreat), centering prayer, Taizé prayer, dream seekers group, men’s movie night, women’s camp and workshops/book studies on a wide range of spiritual and social justice topics.
