Honoring Bishop Houck

JACKSON – Mark Terry places a stencil on the marker for Bishop William Houck’s grave under the watchful eye of his father Jim in the bishops’ cemetery next to the Cathedral of St. Peter the Apostle. The marker was then sandblasted and painted. Onsite engraving is something of a lost art, which is why it took so long to get the work done on the grave. Bishop Houck died in 2016. He was bishop from 1984-2003. (Photo by Mary Woodward)
