Ordinations at Diocesan Convention
On Saturday, April 27, during the Diocesan Convention Eucharist, a service of Ordination was held.
The Rt. Rev. Scott B. Hayashi ordained The Rev. Copeland Johnston and The Rev. Guilherme de Azevedo to be Priests of The Episcopal Church. Elizabeth Harden was ordained to the Transitional Diaconate.
New Videos Shown at Convention
Three new videos shown at diocesan convention are now on the diocesan YouTube channel for all to view.

"And I saw the holy city..." reflects on Bishop Scott B. Hayashi's pilgrimage to Jerusalem and encourages people in our diocese to consider how a diocesan pilgrimage would impact their faith.

"Culture and Faith" highlights the faith community of St. Elizabeth's in Whiterocks and Holy Spirit in Randlett and their efforts to respect, preserve and create awareness of Ute history and culture, specifically through the Doctrine of Discovery Initiative.

"Flourish Bakery" explores a ministry supported by the Diocese of Utah and the work it is doing in our local community. The film was produced by a University of Utah class also supported by the Diocese of Utah.

Journal Reports from Convention
Revisit the Festive Easter Eucharist
As we observe this, the Easter season, relive the celebration of the festive Easter Eucharist and listen to Bishop Scott B. Hayashi's poignant sermon on the importance of the resurrection in our lives today.
The Rev. Terri Heyduk Selected as Canon for Clergy Resources and Support and Transition Officer for the Diocese
Bishop Scott B. Hayashi has selected The Rev. Terri Heyduk to join the diocesan staff as Canon for Clergy Resources and Support/Transition Officer. The transition ministry is primarily designed to help those churches and ministries that are seeking new clerics. The priest retired from serving the diocese the last several years in interim positions at St. Paul’s, Salt Lake City, and St. James, Midvale. Both churches offered praise and thanksgiving for her ministry and the Bishop has retained her on a part-time basis to come out of retirement. The Rev. Heyduk also spearheaded the 150th celebration committee of the Episcopal Diocese and the recent ‘Souper Bowl of Caring' drive.
Listen to Utah Epodcopalians Podcast
The Diocese of Utah launched a new podcast "The Utah Epodcopalians," designed to reflect on the Episcopal Church in our unique land of Utah.

There are two episodes available at  episcopal-ut.org/podcast , as well as on  Podbean , Spotify  and  iTunes.

The third episode will be released May 6, 2019. Watch for a sneak peek of the upcoming episode, which explores culture and faith, on the diocesan facebook page.
Newsletter Publishing
The diocesan newsletter will now be reduced to one issue per month, released on the first day of each month. Twice-monthly issues will resume in September.

As a reminder, if you have something you would like to see in the diocesan newsletter, please email Craig Wirth or Halee Oliver .

Camp Tuttle Extravaganza 2019
from Melanie Lees, Camp Director
Thank you to all who attended the Camp Tuttle benefit brunch on April 6, 2019. 

The wonderful event was a huge success as different parishes and people around the valley attended and showed their support. The fundraiser was held to raise money for the scholarship fund for Camp Tuttle. We try to never turn away a child who wants to attend camp, and this was a way to make sure we have enough in the scholarship fund to make that a reality.

Another goal was to show appreciation to the staff and supporters of camp throughout the years. The Camp Tuttle band provided beautiful music for the event, as we enjoyed games and a delicious brunch by the camp cooks Natalie Upchurch and Annabeth Christie.

The prize drawing was successful and fun. One participant won close to $200 in the heads or tails game. Then, we auctioned off a lunch with the Bishop to a family. We appreciate all the people who attended and their donations to the Camp Tuttle scholarship fund. It was a spectacular affair for all!

GO! Mondays
Go! Monday in April was held at St. James and hosted by The Rev. Christopher Szarke and Terry Palmer. The youth all took an environmental pledge that Bishop Curry is leading for all the dioceses nationwide. They discussed what each one of us can do in our churches, homes and schools to protect and renew God's world.

Go Monday! May 13th
Join us for our end-of-season Go Monday! 
We will celebrate and have a BBQ at the Cathedral Church of St. Mark, 231 East 100 South, SLC.
