State of Texas
Office of the Governor
Our state has been richly blessed in natural beauty, reflecting God’s miracle of creation.
The importance of Christian heritage to the traditions and values of our state is immeasurable.
Religious holidays, festivals, and celebrations have brought welcome respite from weary labor, as well as renewed respect and meaning for nature’s seasons of change.
The community church serves a vital function in binding folks together and providing crucial education and charitable services.
Teaching future generations of our state the all-important role of Christian heritage is of crucial concern to citizens of all faiths.
Therefore, I, Ann W. Richards, Governor of Texas, do hereby proclaim the week beginning Easter Sunday, April 19 through April 25, 1992, as CHRISTIAN HERITAGE WEEK in Texas and urge the appropriate recognition thereof.
In official recognition whereof I hereby affix my signature this 7th day of April, 1992.
Governor of Texas
