Lorraine Warren Event - Monroe, CT.
July 16th, 2011
Lorraine Warren presents a delightful evening referred to as the "Warrenology Event" with the help of her son inlaw Tony Seras. Upon arrival, guests were permitted to explore throughout the yard at their leisure. Lorraine had designed her own home which was constructed on 7 levels. A very informative and interesting session was held on the porch, shaded by trees.
We surrounded Lorraine as if we were a group of young children waiting for a story to be told. The M.A.P.S. Team, as well as the other guests were eager to ask questions and just listen to the fascinating experiences of Lorraine and Ed, the original Ghost Hunters of the 1970's. Lorraine's eyes began to twinkle as she shared tales of meeting Ed during her teen years and spending more than 60 years together as husband and wife. For over 50 years, they (Ed as a Demonologist and she as a trance Medium) were constantly there to help people find peace and understanding of the spirit world. Ed was one of only 7 religious demonologists ...the other 6 all being priests. Together Lorraine and Ed have investigated over 4,000 hauntings. Unfortunately, Ed passed away on August 23, 2006. Lorraine continues to be of service to many who seek out her guidance, compassion and understanding. Over a span of 50 years, the Warrens accumulated many objects believed to harbor negative energy. After viewing a movie, we eagerly entered the Warrens' Occult Museum, with the cautioning words of Tony "Do not touch anything!" ringing in our ears. Our team snapped as many photos as possible and marveled at the variety of objects on display. Of course the most famous being Annabelle, the three foot high rag doll who wrote notes and moved into different positions on her own! The Warrens were referred to help the owners of Annabelle by a priest in the 1970's.
After the museum tour, we made our way to Stepney Cemetery to pay our respects to Ed, who Lorraine visits on a daily basis. The black marble stone was exquisite with its picture depicting St. Michael the Archangel and surrounded by bunches of spectacular daisies which are Lorraines' favorites. Shortly after, we left the cemetery to enjoy a delicious Italian meal at Ruberto's Restaurant. The evening ended with the M.A.P.S. Team enjoying great food, much laughter, conversation and a book signing by our most gracious hostess, Lorraine Warren.
