Web Exclusive: Bishop John Wester on Growing Up
Shauna Lake: Did you grow up in a very religious family?
Bishop Wester: We did. I wouldn't say it was super religious. We said the rosary a lot in my family; we went to mass every Sunday. My dad, God rest him, was a great guy, wonderful, beautiful man and dad's family are all Lutheran and my grandma Wester was Catholic so my dad was raised Catholic. But my grandpa Wester was not Catholic, but my dad went to mass every Sunday. Dad would try to cut mass and my grandfather would bring him back. So dad had a deep respect for the Catholic, he was a deeply spiritual man as is my mother. So they are both spiritual in their own way. I would say we are a religious family, definitely.
