This past week I had the opportunity to meet with the board members of the Catholic Foundation of Utah. I am extremely impressed by the very dedicated and competent individuals who make up our CFU Board. They work above and beyond the call of duty in ensuring that our investments are sound and safe. While there is always an element of risk in the financial markets (one hardly needs to mention this!) our CFU Board works tirelessly in successfully managing the endowment funds, which are created by the generosity of so many in our diocese. I am grateful to all who support and contribute to the various endowments that comprise the Catholic Foundation of Utah and I encourage all of us to keep the Foundation in mind when we are considering charitable donations. Thanks also go to Jennifer Carroll and her wonderful staff for their daily commitment to this necessary fund that supports our diocesan and parish activities.
