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. >>>

Bishop appreciates role of cathedral, rector says

Friday, Feb. 03, 2006
SALT LAKE CITY — "Bishop Niederauer is church," Father Joseph Mayo, rector of the Cathedral of the Madeleine said in an interview with the Intermountain Catholic. "He makes that evident by his decision – his ‘yes’ to his new assignment.

Atkinson convinced San Francisco is just a stop

Friday, Feb. 03, 2006
SALT LAKE CITY — Community activist Pamela Atkinson first liked Bishop George Niederauer for his smile, then for his cheerfulness. In a Jan. 21 interview with the Intermountain Catholic, Atkinson said she believed he would eventually end up in Rome. She thinks there is still a place for him there. >>>

Deacon shares fond memories of 'accessible' bishop

Friday, Feb. 03, 2006
SALT LAKE CITY — "Just like old times in the Holy Land, Max," the bishop greeted me as we vested for the noon-day Mass at the Cathedral of the Madeleine on Christmas Day. His exhausting schedule was not evident in his cheerful greeting. He was his usual warm and witty self. His remark, "Just like old times," was in reference to our pilgrimage in November to the Holy Land where I had the privilege of serving the bishop as deacon of the Mass at eight of the holy sites we visited in Israel and Palestine. >>>

Bishop leaves city a better place; he enriched our lives

Friday, Feb. 03, 2006
SALT LAKE CITY — Salt Lake City has been graced in remarkable ways with the leadership of Bishop George Niederauer. He has been a leader, a voice of reason, and an inspiration not only for the Salt Lake City Catholic Diocese, but for the entire community. >>>

With strong support of bishop, prison chaplain perseveres

Friday, Feb. 03, 2006
AMERICAN FORK — When Bishop Niederauer asked me to become prison chaplain at the Utah State Prison in 1996, I have to admit, at first I was apprehensive. Although I had been offering Mass at the facility in Cedar City, this assignment would be very different, especially since I would be assuming a position that was newly created – that of supervising chaplain. I thought if I lasted more than one year it would be a miracle. >>>

Friday, Feb. 03, 2006
SANDY — Prior to the announcement of his transfer to the Diocese of Sacramento, Bishop William K. Weigand appointed me a diocesan consultor. In that capacity, I and the other consultors met with Diocesan Administrator Msgr. J. Terrence Fitzgerald on a regular basis during the interim prior to the naming of a new bishop. >>>

Prayers and good wishes of Utah Catholics go with you

Friday, Feb. 03, 2006

OGDEN — In his book "Precious as Silver: Imagining Your Life With God," (page 104) Bishop Niederauer uses the image of two different benches to contrast different aspects of life: a bus bench – a pragmatic place where one sits poised for action – and a park bench – a place where one goes for reflection and prayer.  On either bench, Bishop Niederauer was someone I enjoyed sitting next to. Best wishes.

Equestrian Order bids farewell

Friday, Feb. 03, 2006
I have an unusually beautiful frame in my office; one that I felt was more suitable for a quote than a photograph. I did not have to reflect very long before deciding upon a quote I heard Bishop Niederauer use on various occasions, "The Christian leaves behind in life a long trail of empty tombs, only the last of which is the grave." These words have been very powerful for me and I believe most significant at this time for our bishop as he begins his new life in the Archdiocese of San Francisco. >>>
