A New Curate for St. Laurence
In June, our new Curate, Cooper Morelock, will join our parish staff. Cooper is graduating from Nashotah House seminary on June 1 and then he will pack up and move down here, beginning his time with us pretty quickly afterwards. He’ll be here just in time to join our youth on the High School mission trip. Cooper will be ordained a Deacon at St. Laurence on Saturday, July 29 and then ordained a priest probably sometime in the new year. He’ll be with us for the next few years, getting his feet underneath him and learning the priestly ministry.
Cooper is a native Texan, growing up in Brownwood,Texas. He’s a graduate of Texas A&M and is 25 years old. I met him years ago when he was a teenage camper out at Camp Crucis and he actually worked for my wife Liz one summer on staff out there. He’s a great guy and I’m really looking forward to having him join our staff. Join me in welcoming him soon!
