BAPTISM OF SHERYL REDMAN - November 16, 2013

A very rare event occurred in our chapel on November 16, 2013 when our dear friend, Sheryl Redman, was received into the Catholic Church.  Sheryl was employed as a nursing aide at  HealthPark Care Center where she cared for our dear Sr. Mary Emmanuel.   Her association with Sister and with all of the community as we stayed by Sr. Mary Emmanuel’s side led Sheryl to consider this step.  We were overjoyed when she decided to become a Catholic and very moved by the many family and friends who filled our chapel on this very special day.  Msgr. Stephen MacNamara of Resurrection Church, who generously gave permission for the baptism to take place at the monastery, presided along with Deacon Mike Esper.  Sheryl’s friend, Mary Ellen Geiger, acted as her sponsor.A very rare event occurred in our chapel on November 16, 2013 when our dear friend, Sheryl Redman, was received into the Catholic Church.  Sheryl was employed as a nursing aide at  HealthPark Care Center where she cared for our dear Sr. Mary Emmanuel.   Her association with Sister and with all of the community as we stayed by Sr. Mary Emmanuel’s side led Sheryl to consider this step.  We were overjoyed when she decided to become a Catholic and very moved by the many family and friends who filled our chapel on this very special day.  Msgr.
