2024 Annual Meeting

Welcome to the diocese of salt lake city.

Discovered in 1776 by Franciscan Missionaries, and founded in 1891, the diocese of Salt Lake City comprises the entire state of Utah and is home to over 300,000 Catholics, 48 churches, 20 missions, 3 chapels, 5 stations, 3 Newman Centers, a monastery, our cathedral and 16 Catholic schools.

Following in the footsteps of two brave Franciscan explorers, the Diocese of Salt Lake City has grown from its humble roots as a missionary diocese of miners, immigrants and railroad workers, to an important presence on the Utah landscape. The Catholic Community of Utah continues to grow and flourish into the new millennium.

Proud to welcome the EOHSJ Western USA Lieutenancy, we encourage members and guests to register for all our special activities which have been handpicked to celebrate local culture and ecclesial patrimony. We are looking forward to sharing our area’s richness, as well as the diverse talents and gifts of our membership.
