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. >>>

"He is personable, a very deeply spiritual man, and an intellectual person. He can associate with anyone he meets and feel comfortable with them. Yet, you do not feel small. He always makes you feel welcome. >>>

The Action of Grace

Friday, Feb. 03, 2006
SALT LAKE CITY — Flannery O’Connor, one of Bishop George Niederauer’s favorite authors and the focus of his graduate degrees in American Literature, once said, "All my stories are about the action of grace on a character." When these words were first spoken, O’Connor had no idea she was describing the last 11 years in the Catholic Diocese of Utah under the pastoral leadership of Bishop Niederauer. >>>

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.

KEARNS – On Jan. 28, 1995, Bishop George Niederauer made his first pastoral visit to a parish three days after his ordination as eighth bishop of the Diocese of Salt Lake City. He pulled up in front of Our Lady of Perpetual Help Vietnamese Church to help the growing population there celebrate the Vietnamese New Year. It was the year of the rat, and the new bishop had brought the pastor, Father Dominic Thuy Dang Ha a gift – a wooden box that, when the top was slid open, a rubber rat jumped out. >>>
