Church dedicated

The Most Rev. George Niederauer, hand on chest, approaches the altar Sunday during the dedication Mass at the new St. John the Baptist Church in Draper. The Rev. Niederauer, bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Salt Lake City, dedicated the church, below. Parishioners raised most of the $5.5 million to fund construction of the church, which sits at 300 E. 11800 South, the final piece of the Skaggs Catholic Center. The faithful are called to worship by bronze bells, housed in an 85-foot cross tower. The center also houses three schools and a day care, which 2,000 students use. About 1,300 families of the St. John the Baptist parish will attend the church. More information is available at www.skaggscatholiccenter.org.
