Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish says Good Bye to two of its beloved members of clergy. 

Thank you for your “Yes” to God and service to our parish. May you rest in peace in the glory of our Lord’s presence. 

 

Rev. Lawrence P. Christensen 

 June 11, 1933 - January 01, 2018 

 Parochial Vicar at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish from 1999-2002, Pastor from 2002-2009  

     Rev. Lawrence P. Christensen C. M., entered into eternal life on January 1, 2018 at Apostle of Charity Residence, Perryville, MO. Father Larry was 82 years old.  

    Father Larry was born in Chicago on June 11, 1935 to Helen (Kiebel) and Christian Christensen.  Upon completion of elementary school, Father Larry attended DePaul Academy, Chicago, were he graduated in 1954.  In July, 1954, he entered the internal seminary at the Barrens, and professed Vows in the Congregation of the Mission July 31, 1956.  Father Larry lived and served as a Brother in the Province until he was ordained a Deacon on June 4, 1976.  His life and ministry as a Permanent Deacon ended when he received permission to be ordained a Priest on January 7, 1984.  

    Father Larry served the Province and the Church with energy and joy.  In his early years, Father Larry faithfully served in Provincial Administration.  After his ordination to the Priesthood, he began parish ministry at St. Vincent de Paul Parish, Perryville. He later served for three years as Vocation Director before joining the staff at St. Thomas Seminary, Denver in the fall of 1992.  In June, 1994, Father Larry turned his ministerial eye toward parish ministry in Denver.  For the next 22 years, Father Larry served in several different parishes in the Archdiocese of Denver.  Most notably, he served at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, Fort Collins for 10 years and at Church of the Risen Christ, Denver for 8 years. 

    In July, 2017, Father Larry was transferred to Apostle of Charity Residence, Perryville, with serious health issues.  These issues proved to be ALS (Lou Gerhig’s Disease).  While his illness progressed rapidly, Father Larry maintained a joy of life and complete openness to the will of God.  His trust and dependence on Divine Providence never faltered. 

    Father Larry died peacefully the evening of January 1, 2018.  He is survived by his confreres, a niece and several dear friends. May he rest in peace. 

    A memorial Mass for Fr. Larry will be held on Sunday, January 28 at 5:00pm at Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish in Fort Collins.   

 

Howard Frisinger II 

      Howard was born on February 28, 1933 in Ann Arbor, Michigan. He grew up in Ann Arbor and attended the University of Michigan, earning four degrees, including a Doctorate in Mathematics in 1964. While a student at the University of Michigan, Howard met a nursing student, Mim Rinkevicz, at a summer school square dance in June 1953. Howard was immediately smitten. It took Mim a little longer. They were married August 14, 1954 at the Michigan Catholic Student Chapel. They shared 63 years of love which grew deeper with each year. 

      Following his graduation, Howard entered the Air Force as a second Lieutenant in July 1956. He was assigned to a SAC base in the Moroccan desert. His family of Mim and two young daughters, Lisa Marie and Cynthia Ann, accompanied Howard to this new and remote base. Howard served as a weather officer on base from January 1959 to September 1960. While serving, Mim gave birth to their son, Stephen Michael. In February of 1960, Howard was offered the highly sought after appointment to the Regular Air Force. Howard had seriously considered making a career in the Air Force, but he had a dream of becoming a college teacher, so he turned the offer down and left active duty in September 1960 to return with his family to Ann Arbor. He entered the graduate program in Mathematics at Michigan. Howard remained in the Air Force Ready Reserve from 1960 to 1964, and obtained the rank of captain.     

      Howard obtained his doctorate in Mathematics in December 1964. So, Howard and his family moved to Fort Collins, where his third daughter, Laura Ruth, was born. During his 35 years at Colorado State University, Howard was a member of many professional societies including: The American Mathematics Society, The American Meteorological Society, The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics and the International History of Science Society. 

      Howard was ordained a Permanent Deacon in the Roman Catholic Church on May 9, 1981, serving most of his ministry at Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish in Fort Collins. His greatest joy as a deacon occurred when he baptized four of his grandchildren and was the minister at each of his daughters’ weddings. He is survived by his wife, Mim, daughter, Lisa (Doug), daughter, Cindy (Gregg), son, Steve (Kathleen) and daughter, Laura, his brother Joe, and six grandchildren.
