Dear Servites,

Fr Lawrence M Choate, OSM, peacefully passed away in the presence of the OLS community, family, and friends. He was 70 years of age and a solemn professed friar for 39 years.
Please keep the OLS community, the Choate family, and the parishioners of St Francis of Assisi in your prayers.  Eternal rest grant unto him O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon him. May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed through the mercy of God, rest in peace.

Blessings,
Sue Weigand, OSSM
