Day of Reflection: Living the Simple Life

Prepare for the New Year by getting closer to your True Self and the Spirit within led by Bernadette DeAngelis

Born in Philadelphia, Bernadette spent most of her working life as a bookkeeper and office manager for numerous clothing stores. Her interest in the simple life started when she realized that the amount of money spent on luxury items far outweighed peoples’ desire to spend their days getting closer to their true self and the Spirit within.

Bernadette believes we are here to always be of service to others. To go beyond our family and friends. To reach out to those in pain. To go deep into ourselves to discover our true self and in so doing touch the Spirit we long for. What better way to prepare for the New Year than to reflect upon these things.

Retreat Leader: Bernadette DeAngelis
Bernadette has worked in numerous social activities in Philadelphia including as a volunteer for the Mayor’s Literacy Program, and the first hospice volunteer at PA Hospital, visiting patients in last stages of AIDS.  In 1994, Bernadette entered St. Gertrude’s Monastery in Ridgely, MD,  working both in the school and Habilitation Center. After leaving she became a Support Broker and Financial Consultant for persons with disabilities. She spent almost 9 years as a Family Crisis Therapist for the Division of family Services and is currently working as a Family Support Specialist.
