The chalice was given to Bishop Frederic Baraga in 1854 by Austrian Emperor Franz (Francis) Joseph when Bishop Baraga represented the American church at the emperor's wedding. The late Mary Jane (Dr. John) Beaumier, formerly of Escanaba, was instrumental in having the chalice refurbished for use at important diocesan functions. JAMIE GUALDONI THE U.P. CATHOLIC Members of the Baraga Association pack Northern Michigan University's Great Lakes Rooms for the annual meeting on Sunday, Sept. 11. The meeting included a drum circle (see Page 1) and naming Lore Ann Parent Woman of the Year (see Page 16). JOHN FEE THE U.P. CATHOLIC Pauline Gregorich Scharres of Chicago (left) shows the work of her father, Joseph Gregorich to her longtime friend, Beverly Wynne of Columbus, Ohio. Joseph Gregorich was one of the founders of the Baraga Association in 1930, he translated the writings of the diocese's first bishop from multiple languages into English. His extensive collection of work is preserved in the association archives. Gregorich's translation was used for the Diary, and in 1932 he wrote "Apostle of the Chippewas, the Life Story of the Most Rev. Frederick Baraga, D.D." Baraga Days drew an international crowd to Marquette the weekend of Sept. 10-11. Visitors from Slovenia and across the U.S. were in atten- dance along with three bishops. Bishop John Doerfler of the Diocese of Marquette was joined in cele- brating Sunday morning Mass in English by Bishop Steven Raica of the Diocese of Gaylord and Bishop David Walkowiak of the Diocese of Grand Rapids. Association Executive Director Len McKeen said, "Our annual Baraga Days celebration is a special time of honoring Venerable Bishop Baraga for his tireless ministry to the people of the Upper Peninsula and beyond. This year's event held many new opportunities for family involvement in an effort to contin- ue to educate others about Bishop Baraga" Next year's Baraga Days is sched- uled for Sept. 2-3 and will be held in Grand Rapids, Mich. It was Bishop Baraga that brought Catholicism to Grand Rapids.
