Eternal rest grant unto Lawrence, O Lord.
And let perpetual light shine upon him.
And may the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

to the message of salvation by his dedication to Christian education, grant that he may be admitted to your
eternal friendship with those who have likewise zealously labored in Your Vineyard. We ask this through
Christ, our Lord. Amen.”
