Next Breakfast

Guest Speaker: Deacon Emmanuel Ekanem

Part 2

Emmanuel Ekanem, is a seminarian at St. Joseph Seminary in Edmonton, Alberta, for the Archdiocese of Grouard-MacLennan. He will be ordained a priest in 2020. His native homeland is Nigeria where he became a computer software developer before he received the call from the Lord nine years ago to become a priest.

He had a mother who provided him with all the motherly care and guidance necessary to form a personality that was religiously, socially, emotionally and intellectually sound. Emmanuel was encouraged by a friend and faithful witness of Jesus, who he met in high school; she was instrumental in his conversion to the Catholic faith from the Muslim religion. He discovered Jesus Christ through Marian devotions and later became a Catholic in 1997. This friendship further led to the conversion of five of his family members (including his parents) from Islamic religion to Catholicism; it was the best thing that happened to him and them. In August of 2015 Deacon Emmanuel came Canada to finish his theological studies for the priesthood.

Guest Speaker: Maria Vadia

Born in Havana, Maria Vadia was 10 years old when she and her family fled to Miami to escape the Communist regime in her native country. She attended Catholic schools and was a “Sunday” Catholic with no personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. Later married to a wealthy man, she was gripped with materialism; yet in the midst of everything that the world had to offer, she knew that something was missing.

Maria was baptized in the Holy Spirit in 1987 and consecrated her life to the Lord Jesus Christ and to the preaching of the Gospel. In spite of great adversity, the Lord has been with her like a Mighty Warrior (Jeremiah 20:11)

Active in the Catholic Charismatic Renewal of the Archdiocese of Miami, Maria has spoken at many conferences and has traveled extensively around the world including America, the Caribbean, Malta, Ghana, Uganda, Tanzania, Zimbabwe, Indonesia, New Zealand, Canada, India, Poland and Italy, among other nations, bringing a message of faith, salvation and healing. She is Founder of the ‘Jesus is Lord’ Chapter of Magnificat in Miami, a ministry to Catholic women, and is connected with Glory House of Miami, a safe haven for human traffic victims. Led by the Holy Spirit, Maria’s foundation is helping the Pygmies with new houses in Kabale, Uganda.

As Founder of The Glory of God Foundation, Maria is committed to making Jesus known to the nations by the preaching of the Gospel in the power of the Holy Spirit. It is her desire to see the Catholic Church restored to the beauty of the Bride of Christ with miracles, signs, and wonders. Maria and her team, have been helping God’s people enter into deeper worship and experience the Glory of God. Together with Fr. Tom di Lorenzo she sponsors the School of the Holy Spirit and Days of Glory conference.

Maria has authored nine books: There is Power in Your Tongue (En) /Hay Poder en tu Lengua (Sp), Pressing on in The SpiritAn Arrow in His HandHealing is for YouBreak Open Your WellsVictory in the Eye GateNo More Orphans, and Jesus Man of War!. She is mother to four grown children: Ricky, Victor, Eddy, and Rosario, and grandmother to nine: Victoria, Alejandra, Eduardo, Micaela, Guillermo, Andrea, Lulu (Luisa Maria), Mariana and Rosario.
