Jan Wantland, 1941-2017

Jan Wantland, the wife of Bishop William Wantland, passed away
in her sleep this morning. The funeral service will be held
at 1 pm. Wednesday, Aug. 23, at Swearingen Funeral Home
in Seminole, OK. A committal at Nashotah House will follow at a later
date. Please keep the family in your prayers. May the soul of Jan,
and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God,
rest in peace: And may light perpetual shine upon them.


On Sunday, Fr. Len Giacolone conducted the first service
in the new church building now occupied by the parish of
St. Francis Anglican in Austin. Following a flurry of move-in
activity on Saturday, members returned for Sunday worship,
a relaxed coffee hour, and time to explore the new facility
on Oak Creek Drive.
