Father Kramer's funeral details

Reverend Lawrence Kramer, a long-time priest of the diocese, died on January 23, 2014 while on vacation in Florida. Ordained a priest May 28, 1960, Father Larry served many parishes of the diocese and was very instrumental in expanding campus ministry within the diocese. Starting at Indiana Tech in the mid 1960’s he took this ministry to college students all over the diocese. Father Larry served as a pastor of many parishes and twice as a vicar forane. His ever present sense of humor and insights into life will be sorely missed.
Services for Father Kramer will be as follows:
Friday, January 31, 2014 Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, Fort Wayne
Reception of the Body: 3:00 PM
Rosary: 4:30 PM
Vigil Service: 7:00 PM
Visitation: 3:00 PM to 7:00 PM
Saturday, February 1, 2014 Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, Fort Wayne
Visitation: 10:00 AM to 10:50 AM
Mass of Christian Burial: 11:00 AM
Burial: Catholic Cemetery immediately following

Please keep Father Kramer and his family in your prayers. As is our custom, all priests of the diocese are asked to offer or see that a Mass is offered for the repose of the soul of Father Larry Kramer.
