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.

Sue Weigand, OSSM
