What were the most life-changing moments for Stuart?

Beth Knobel
I know that one moment that was deeply memorable for Stuart was his baptism into the Catholic faith. I can't remember if this was in 1983 or 1984, but it took place in St. Paul's Chapel at Columbia, I think around Easter. If I'm not mistaken, Stuart became close to Father Paul Dinter, the Catholic chaplain at Columbia at the time, and decided to adopt Catholicism as his faith deepened. I remember it being a beautiful ceremony that brought Stuart great joy. And it brought his friends there joy to see him so happy.
