Maame Agyemang, a student in SM Barbara Ann Kemmerer’s class at Immaculate Conception School in Elkton, MD, was received into the Catholic Church on Friday, May 17.
Maame received the sacraments of Baptism and Eucharist for the first time with the entire student body present. She is originally from the country of Ghana and Sister Barbara Ann has been her teacher for the past two years.
Sister Barbara sponsored Maame as her godmother. Her father is in Kenya on business but her mother was present and her brother will be attending ICS next year.
Sister Barbara Ann said, “Who knows? This could be a vocation in the making. Maame has been an example to all, exemplifying what a good Christian should be.”
