In this September 2012 interview with Russell Magnaghi in Marquette, Michigan, Bishop James Garland details some highlights of his then twenty-year career within the Diocese of Marquette. Bishop Garland begins telling of the life and career of the recently-passed Father Gauthier, whose many professional titles included Superintendent of Catholic Schools, Director of the Propagation of the Faith, and long-time pastor of St. Louis Parish in Harvey. He also tells of his trials and achievements associated with closing and restructuring institutes and parishes within the Diocese of Marquette. The history of the Diocese of Marquette before Bishop Garland is also discussed by both Bishop Garland and Russell Magnaghi.
