He continued doing what he loved most, evangelizing and ministering, at a Haitian American church, named Church of God, in Stainford.

He was also known for being a talented playwright of Christian comedy to perform during church events and services. He spent a lot of time fellowshipping alongside the church musicians, playing his guitar and enjoying the sounds of music with them.
Fr. Fritz was a father not only to his own, but to many others that were fatherless. He reached out to individuals, especially within the youth, by counseling and using words of encouragement to keep them motivated and driven. He taught many how to read and wtite so that they could have brighter futures and aspirations. Fr. Fritz was a man with a big heart who did not like to watch people suffer. He also fought for those who did not have enough strength to fight for themselves. He was open to everyone around him with the time that he had, while giving them the option to seize those moments. At the same time, allowing those moments to resonate. Fr. Fritz demonstrated his love for the people around him the best way he knew how. He always made himself available to those who were in need. He constantly reminded his loved one's time and time again from these pieces of scripture Exodus 14:14, "The Lord will fight for you. You need only to be still," Lamentations 3:26 "It is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord." His favorite verse, in which he lived b was from the book of Joshua 24:15, "...As for me and my household, we will serve the Lord." To us, he will always be known as a great evangelist, servant of God, father, grandfather and figurehead of his community.
