Carolyn Morris

Carolyn Morris, her husband Sam, and daughters Laura and Sarah joined the Redeemer about 25 years ago when they moved to the Main Line from Chestnut Hill. Sam is continuing a family tradition in coming to the Redeemer. His grandfather sang in the Redeemer choir as a boy, was married at the Redeemer and is buried in the churchyard, along with 40 other Morris family members. While Carolyn is a lifetime Episcopalian, she is a newcomer to the Philadelphia area, having moved here in 1975. In her professional career, she worked in commercial real estate with both insurance companies and foreign investors. Carolyn’s second career was in the nonprofit world, running a foundation. As a third act, she is a wife, mother, sister, aunt, niece, friend and volunteer. Currently Carolyn is a member of the Board of Women Visitors at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. She supports the endeavors of Camphill Soltane/Parzival and has a variety of roles at the Redeemer. Currently, Carolyn’s primary activities at the Redeemer include serving as a member of the Healing Ministry team, working on the Outreach Dinner Party and Bazaar, acting as a member of the Capital Campaign Committee and participating in a Foyers group. Previously, she was a member of the Outreach Committee, the Finance Committee, Pastoral Care, a Rector Search Committee and the Vestry. She has chaired and co-chaired the Outreach Dinner Party and Bazaar; co-chaired the Capital Campaign, Part I, chaired the Episcopal Church Women and occasionally volunteered for IHN. Carolyn’s leisure interests include travel, needlepoint, collecting Chinese export porcelain, antiques, reading, The Bridge Group and sporadic bingeing on amusing, but mindless, TV series such as The Crown, Madam Secretary, and Bull.
