Nine bishops of the Syracuse 2nd Ward

Bishop Kipton J. Norris of the Syracuse 2nd Ward, Syracuse Utah Legacy Park Stake, wanted to do something special for Father's Day 2010. He wanted to get a picture of all nine living former bishops of the 2nd Ward, which was formed in 1953.

To start, Bishop Norris called Bishop John Flint, the sixth of the 11 bishops, and asked for his help.

"Of the 11 bishops that this ward has had, nine of us are still alive and kicking." Bishop Flint said. "When I heard what Bishop Norris wanted to do I got excited about the opportunity for all of us to get together."

Currently, four of the former bishops still live in the ward boundaries, but Bishop Norris needed help finding the rest.
