“Proclaim with me the Lord’s greatness. Let us proclaim his name together.” Psalm 34″

This verse from Psalm 34 was a favorite of Sister Maureen Sheahan.

Catherine Ann Sheahan, born July 13, 1938, was the first child of Donald and Agnes (Grinzinger) Sheahan of Rosebush, Michigan. Two more girls and a boy followed, bringing the family to four children on the farm near Beal City, Michigan. Catherine’s early years of education were at the parish school known at that time as St. Philomena (now known as St. Joseph the Worker). During the first eight years, young Catherine was taught by Dominican Sisters. Her secondary education was at Beal City Public High School. As the eldest of four she gained experience and skill in food preparation and homemaking as well as skills needed on the family farm. She was active in the local 4-H Club.

After graduating from high school, Catherine entered the Dominican Congregation at Marywood in 1956 along with four other young women from Beal City.
