Good Shepherd, Granbury
Good Shepherd, Granbury
Trinity Sunday was a Vasquez family affair at the Church of
the Good Shepherd in Granbury as the parents, Makenzie,
and Nick, were confirmed, along with their daughter, Lexus.
Their other daughter, Kate, made her first communion,
and the youngest, Nickson, was baptized.
Fr. Stuart Smith has been Rector of the parish since 2006.
