"The Preachers chiefly shall take heed that they teach nothing in their preaching, which they would have the people religiously to observe and believe, but that which is agreeable to the Doctrine of the Old Testament and the New, and that which the Catholick Fathers and Ancient Bishops have gathered out of that Doctrine." A proposed canon of Elizabeth I, 1571

Bell Tower Dedication, September 17th

Today the Rt. Rev. Jack Leo Iker, bishop of Fort Worth, presided at the dedication of our new campanile at St. Vincent's Cathedral Church. The architect of the tower presented Dean Ryan Reed with the blueprints. The dedication took place in the context of the parish's 50th anniversary celebration. Barbara Burton played the new electronic carillon following the service. All of these photographs were taken by my father, R.D. Foster. More images of the dedication may be found here. The Fort Worth Star-Telegram photo may be found here.

Congratulations one and all! The new tower looks just splendid. Bet it sounds terrific as well.

Scott, a great lover of bells, whose current favorites are those of Saint Meinrad Archabbey...nothing like being awakened by them at 5:15 a.m.!
