Welcome! It is
Sunday, October 4, 2015
in Fort Worth.
Congratulations to Bishop William Wantland on his 35th anniversary as a Bishop! He was consecrated as Bishop of the Diocese of Eau Claire on Sept. 30, 1980, in succession to the Rt. Rev. Stanley Atkins, where he served for 19 years, retiring in 1999. He and his wife, Jan, then moved to Seminole, Okla., where Bishop Wantland grew up. He has served as Assisting Bishop of Fort Worth since 2004. We thank God for his faithful witness and service over the years.
The growth of Mision Santa Cruz in Houston was evident
this past Sunday
when the congregation of nearly 100 worshipers
welcomed the confirmation of five new adult members.
Father Raphael Villareal (center, rear) is the founding vicar.
Also present for the service were Jennifer and Fr. Micah Snell and their four children, to celebrate the birth of the newest
member of their family, two-and-a-half-week-old Rosemary Imogene.
Fr. Snell teaches at the Houston Baptist University.
