St. Laurence, Southlake
Confirmands at St. Laurence
Fr. John Jordan and Fr. Bill Blewett presented a confirmation
class of 13 to be confirmed and four for reaffirmation at the
Bishop’s visitation to St. Laurence Church in Southlake. During
the offertory at both services, children presented their Lenten
mite boxes and participated in the flowering of the cross.
Bishop Iker assured the congregation they could move forward
with building expansion plans without the cloud of litigation
hanging over them, thanks to the court ruling on our behalf.
