Archbishop-designate receives DCCW thanks

Friday, Feb. 03, 2006
SALT LAKE CITY — On behalf of the Diocese of Salt Lake City Council of Catholic Women (DCCW) I am honored to write this tribute from our organization. Bishop Niederauer has been a wonderful support to our group for the last 11 years; it is difficult to describe all that he has really meant to us. The women will never forget his sense of humor, wit, intellect, compassion, and kindness. His first introduction to our group was at our convention banquet just a few months after his installation as bishop. The wonderful entertainment by the "Sisters of the Rainbow" will never be forgotten. Of course we weren’t sure if he would ever come back again. He did, and he has joined us for many of our board meetings, the province meetings held in Salt Lake City in 2003 and 2004 by then Province Director, Bobbie Hunt, and all of our Annual DCCW Convention Banquets. It meant so much to the Parish Women of the Year to receive their medals from the Bishop. He has been a great supporter of our sponsorship program that helps women to be able to attend our annual convention. This has increased awareness of DCCW and strengthened our organization throughout the diocese. >>>

Government liaison recalls meeting Bishop Niederauer

SALT LAKE CITY — I almost missed knowing Bishop Niederauer! In 1994, after ten years of working for the Diocese with Bishop William Weigand, it was my intention to resign and move on to some other position once our new bishop was appointed. He deserved the opportunity to choose his own staff. As it happened, I was en route home from a Holy Land pilgrimage the day he came to Salt Lake for the announcement of his appointment, so I missed meeting him during the formal round of introductions. >>>

'Punctuality is the politeness of kings'

Friday, Feb. 03, 2006
SALT LAKE CITY — I remember the day I first heard this quotation. I was sitting in a meeting of the Diocesan Liturgical Commission with members who were chatting for a few minutes before the official business began. Uncharacteristically, Bishop Niederauer was late. After waiting a few minutes, the presider proceeded without him. He arrived shortly then quipped, "Hmm. Punctuality is the politeness of kings." The words stuck with me. In recent times especially, I have reflected upon them deeply. >>>

Sisters of Mount Benedict give tribute to the bishop

OGDEN — Mount Benedict Monastery was established as an independent and self-responsible monastery in the Diocese of Salt Lake City in August of 1994, only five months before Bishop George Niederauer was ordained as bishop of the diocese. Since that beginning, the Sisters of St. Benedict have experienced a most supportive and encouraging relationship with our bishop. >>>

Madeleine Choir and School will miss the bishop

SALT LAKE CITY — St Gregory of Tours, the sixth-century bishop who served in what is today France, records in his "Vitae Patrum" an interesting event in the life of his uncle, who also served as a bishop. Gregory’s uncle, Gallus of Clermont had traveled to celebrate Mass with a brother bishop in another diocese accompanied by a deacon named Valentius. Bishop Gallus had ordered his deacon to maintain silence throughout the Mass, but apparently moved by the occasion, Deacon Valentius suddenly burst into song in front of the gathered assembly. >>>

Bishop Niederauer remembered for 'human touch'

Friday, Feb. 03, 2006
SALT LAKE CITY — Shortly after coming to the Diocese of Salt Lake City in 1998, I attended a meeting where Bishop Niederauer was present. After I was introduced to him, he inquired about Sr. Celine Dounies since he didn’t see her at the gathering that day. Knowing people, remembering names, and genuine interest in others was always a special gift for him. >>>
