September 21, 2011 — Father Barron is an old friend (and a colleague on NBC’s Vatican coverage), but I’ll risk the charge of special pleading by stating unequivocally that Father Barron’s “Catholicism,” a 10-part series premiering on public television stations around the country this fall, is a master work by a master teacher.
In 10 episodes that take the viewer around the Catholic world, from Chartres to the slums of Calcutta and dozens of points in-between, Father Barron lays out the Catholic proposal in a visually stunning and engaging series of presentations that invites everyone into the heart of the faith, which is friendship with Jesus Christ.

A little help
For a book about Julia Greeley (d.1918), Denver’s celebrated “Angel of Charity” and “Apostle of the Sacred Heart,” I am seeking photographs and basic biographical information about the following people who were involved in various facets of her remarkable story. Perhaps one of them is a relative or former acquaintance of yours:
Francis O. Worland, Judge Joseph and Agnes (Gaveghan) Walsh, Eva Walsh, George and Agnes (Rooney) Urquhart, Marjorie (Urquhart) Simpson, Jennie J. Ryan, Frank Reynolds, Terence Owens, Helen Noonan R.N., Madelyn Nicholds, John McNulty, Carrie Lindblad, Thomas and Ellen (Madden) Lee, Lucile (Hagus) Imherr, Mrs. Michael Howard, William P. Horan (mortician), Rose Ann Honeyman, John F. Healey Jr., Agnes (Day) Grosheider, Helen (Hyland) Griffin, Wilma Gerspach, Mrs. H.E. Gallagher, Rose (Stetter) Fisher, Agnes (Hines) Erger, John H. Dalrymple, Dr. Martin Currigan, Dan Cronin, Eleanor (Pavella) Castellan, Theodora (O’Donnell) Arnold, Mildred (Connell) Arkins.
If any Denver Catholic Register readers can help me, I would be most grateful.
