Msgr. Thomas W. Weinzapfel - 1921-2016

It is with deep sadness that we inform you of the death of Msgr. Thomas W. Weinzapfel.  Msgr. Weinzapfel passed away January 1, 2016 on the Feast of the Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God.

Msgr. Weinzapfel was the oldest and longest serving diocesan priest of the Diocese of Dallas, having just celebrated his 70 years of priesthood earlier this month. Monsignor served as the Pastor for St. Pius X Catholic Church from May 1956 until his retirement in 1996. Please keep the Weinzapfel family in your prayers.

Eternal Rest grant him, O Lord, and may perpetual light shine upon him. May he rest in peace.
