Church forming in
Northeast Tarrant County
Fr. Louis Tobola spoke at the annual parish meetings
of St. Stephens, Hurst, and St. Martin-in-the-Fields,
Keller, and at the adult forum of St. Laurence, Grapevine, in January
to provide information about the forming of a new congregation in northeast
Tarrant County. Response was very positive as over 50 people committed

opportunity will be given to parishioners as Fr.Tobola returns to preach

If you would like to assist in any way with the founding of this new
parish, please send e-mail to: stmartin@stmartininthefield.
