In memory of Msgr. Charles Taylor
Msgr. Charles Taylor… Charlie Taylor… The diocese will not be the same without him. His priestly service to our diocese was meticulous. Holding a doctorate in Canon Law from a Roman university, the law was sacred to Msgr. There was no deviation. He was, if you will, the conscience of the Church in Wyoming.
Msgr. had difficulty adjusting following Vatican II --- when the focus of the Church became pastoral rather than legalistic. Yet, Msgr. was always a very compassionate priest. He was always fully a priest while serving the good people of Lander, Powell, Buffalo, St. Paul Newman Center, and Laramie. He was the first full-time Campus Minister in Laramie.
While at the University of Wyoming he became an avid Cowboy fan. He prayed and traveled with the team. Those were the glory days for the Cowboys.
May God be very good to Monsignor. May He reward him for his lifetime of priestly service. May his spirit continue to be with the Church in Wyoming. May he rest in peace.
