Monsignor J. Terrence Fitzgerald's Retirement

Wednesday, Jan. 12, 2011
Most have heard the news that Monsignor Fitzgerald has announced his retirement for later this year. By any standard it is difficult – if not impossible – to measure the contributions Monsignor has made and will continue to make to our diocese. For practically his entire life he has served this local Church and beyond with distinction, selflessness, compassion and vision. His ministry is unparalleled in our time and it reminds me of our founding bishop, whose courage and tireless efforts laid the foundation for the Diocese we call home. >>>

Bishop Wester's new blog: Tuesday Tapestry

Saturday, Jan. 08, 2011

SALT LAKE CITY — This blog is the first of an ongoing posting that I intend to write for all in the Diocese of Salt Lake City. This is one way for me to share with you the many and varied experiences I am privileged to have in our great diocese. Throughout the weeks, I meet wonderful people and experience many heartwarming and spiritual events that help to shape our diocese. I am pleased for this opportunity to share these moments with you and to alert you to upcoming events that affect our lives as Catholics here in Utah. This is more in the style of a journal than of an essay and I invite you to "eavesdrop" on my week, realizing that, after all, it is not my week but our week. Thanks for reading – I hope you enjoy these weekly reviews.
