Pat Ermi: Former Southern Baptist

May 27, 2013 No Comments

Pat Irmi of OH grew up in an active Southern Baptist home and attended a Baptist college.  She shares her story of marriage, divorce and remarriage that, for the most part, was devoid of faith practices.  It really was not until the crisis of her youngest son’s diagnosis of a brain tumor, that Pat began to seek spiritual assistance.  At the urging of her mother, Pat looked to the faith tradition of her husband – the Catholic Church.  Pat shares that journey in such a difficult time in her life, and how, specifically, the Eucharist brought her into the saving grace and presence of Jesus.
