Maryann Carr led life of prayer

November 10, 2010 - Dear Editor,

Last week we said farewell to a living treasure in our midst. Maryann Carr passed from this life on Oct. 19, 2010, following a heroic battle with cancer. Her tireless and ever cheerful life of witness will be missed by the community.

In describing the ministry of the great St. Paul, it was said everything Paul said and did equaled a life of continuous prayer. His prayer, his life, was sparked by a hunger satisfied only by communion with Christ.

Maryann's life was also one continuous prayer. She was all about serving, and being served by Christ, and always in community.

Her membership with St. Daniel's Catholic Community was a true reflection of the faith that inspired Maryann's life.

It couldn't have been more fitting that her Mass of Celebration began at the new flowing Baptismal Font and for the choir to be singing songs she so much enjoyed singing with them. Maryann herself chose "The Servant Song" by David Haas as the parting song.

I will always think of Maryann holding my Christ light for me.

We wept, we laughed, walking the mile and bearing the load.
