Among the blessing ceremony participants were representatives from Nazareth Center’s ministry partners, Sister Suzanne Wesley, Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet Province Leadership Team, and Kevin Rymanowski and Chris Boldt, Benedictine Health System. Also speaking was John Schmerold, chair of the Nazareth Living Center’s Board of Trustees.
