'What We've Accomplished Together' brings leadership together for 40th anniversary of DDD

Friday, Feb. 03, 2006

SANDY — "What We’ve Accomplished Together" is the name of a DVD making appearances at a Catholic parish near you. The celebratory production for the 40th anniversary of the Diocesan Development Drive (DDD) was produced by Diocesan Vicar General Msgr. J. Terrence Fitzgerald, written by DDD Director Shannon Lee, and filmed and edited by Cris Paulsen. With an archival interview with the late Bishop Joseph Lennox Federal, founder of the DDD in 1966, and interviews with Bishop William K. Weigand of Sacramento, Calif., the Diocese of Salt Lake City’s seventh bishop, and Archbishop-designate George Niederauer of San Francisco, Calif., our eighth bishop, "What We’ve Accomplished Together" is a valuable historical tool tracing not only the history of the annual fund drive that supports the bishop’s ministries, but a dramatic look at the last 60 years of diocesan history.

J.E. Cosgriff students take TGIF – fun classes each Friday

Friday, Feb. 03, 2006
SALT LAKE CITY — How many people think "Thank God it’s Friday"? At Cosgriff School in January the letters TGIF means more than just thanking God for Friday. When I first began working at Cosgriff school 10 years ago, I noticed on the school calendar that every Friday in January had the letters TGIF written on it. Puzzled, I began to ask if the staff had meetings at the restaurant TGI Friday’s. After a laugh, I was told this is a fun program the school instituted years before to give the students a time to learn a new craft, participate in an activity they otherwise wouldn’t be able to participate in; simply have a little fun on a Friday afternoon in January. >>>

Vicar General cites trust, communications as gifts

Friday, Feb. 03, 2006

Vicar General

When a prominent leader moves on, the question often asked is what will be their legacy. For anyone who has read the newspaper editorials, listened to radio and television commentaries, or ever made the acquaintance of Bishop George Niederauer, the legacy is clear: He invested in individuals and in the community. In the past 11 years, he shook more hands and addressed more congregations than most Utahns of recent memory.
