Fr. Walter Karrer, former novice master, dies at age 90

Please remember in your prayers Fr. Walter C. Karrer who died December 22 at St. Clement Health Care Center in Liguori, MO at age 90.

Fr. Karrer was novice master to many young Redemptorists from the Baltimore Province in the 1970s and 1980s. He had been suffering from complications following surgery for a broken hip.

Fr. Karrer made his final profession as a Redemptorist on September 2, 1944, and was ordained to the priesthood on January 2, 1947.

A funeral Mass was celebrated December 28 at 10 a.m. at St. Clement Health Care Center.

Please join us in praying for the repose of the soul of Fr. Karrer, and for the comfort of his family, friends, and fellow Redemptorists.
