Bishop Hayashi 's Summer Message  

The Rt. Rev. Scott B. Hayashi offers a prayerful message for the Summer Season.  

July 2nd Birthday Celebrations

Bishop Tuttle, circa 1867.
It was 150 years ago on July 2, 1867, that Bishop Daniel S. Tuttle climbed out of a stage, stood on the corner of First South and Second East in Salt Lake City and started his ministry. Coincidentally, the office of the 11th Bishop of the diocese, The Rt. Rev. Scott B. Hayashi, is located at First South and Second East and he looks forward to our continued ministry as we move into the future.

The 150th celebration committee of the 150th Task Force wants everyone "to party like it's 1867." Each congregation should have received a birthday box filled with party swag to observe the commemoration of our ministries, outreach, and our part in the Utah and Northern Arizona Jesus Movement. 

The 150th website is up and running; please click below to access it.

Prayers for Fire Victims and First Responders

Bishop Scott B. Hayashi and the Episcopal Diocese of Utah offer prayers for all those impacted by wildfires, especially the Brian Head Fire.  At press time, with close to 60,000 acres burning, the heroic efforts of fire fighters and other first responders had contained 20% of the blaze. We are grateful for their dedication to keeping others safe and preserving our forests.  We are mindful of all those affected by wildfires in Utah and across our nation. We pray that all will exercise caution to prevent fires with the upcoming 4th of July holiday and throughout the fire season.
