Catholic Foundation of Utah

Bishop Wester

Dear Friends in Christ,

For twenty-nine years, The Catholic Foundation of Utah has been an integral part of sustaining the many causes so critical to our Catholic community, causes that are made possible through your genuine concern for others. The dollars and commitment that you, as a benefactor, contribute to The Catholic Foundation of Utah will assure the ongoing stability to the four pillars of the foundation that serve our brothers and sisters in Christ, namely:

  • Bishop's Future Fund
  • Youth Ministry and Education
  • Seminarian and Priest Formation
  • Rural Church Development and Missionary Outreach

Your prayerful consideration in sharing your gifts and treasures to contribute to one or all of the pillars will be a joyful experience as you have the satisfaction of helping those who are in need. Establishing your family named endowment and including the Church in your will and estate planning is an example of stewardship and cheerful giving. You have the possibility of changing another person’s life.

I want to take this opportunity to recognize the many efforts of the Board of The Catholic Foundation. The twenty-one trustees' shared expertise, enthusiasm and diligence is truly commendable as they work on behalf of the foundation. Equally important and dedicated is the foundation staff. To the CFU board and staff, I extend my gratitude. If you have any questions regarding the foundation, do not hesitate to contact the executive director, Jennifer L. Carroll.

Praying that God's many blessings will be yours during this Year of Grace and with my wishes for a year of bountiful joy and health, I remain

Sincerely yours in the Lord,

John C. Wester<

The Most Reverend John C. Wester
Bishop of Salt Lake City
