BISHOP SEARCH UPDATE: In recent weeks, the Nominating Committee and the Standing Committee have been prayerfully considering the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on the Bishop Search process. 

Given the extraordinary circumstances, the Standing Committee has made the decision, with the Nominating Committee’s recommendation, to shift the Bishop Search process by 60-90 days. The Nominating Committee will continue to do their work during this time, however, the Diocesan Profile, which was scheduled for release on July 1, 2020, is now scheduled to be released September 1, 2020 to October 1, 2020. 

The Standing Committee is very grateful for the work and discernment of the Nominating Committee during this difficult time. We’ll keep you informed in the coming months as events unfold and the schedule of the search process becomes more clear.

The Rt. Rev. Scott B. Hayashi has issued a Call to Convention for the Diocese of Utah to take place electronically via the internet September 19 and 20, 2020

Delegates WILL NOT gather in Salt Lake City en masse.

"I hoped that delaying our Diocesan Convention until the Autumn would provide us the possibility of being able to meet together in person. Unfortunately, the best expert and scientific opinion is that COVID-19 will continue to be threat to the health and safety of the people until we have an effective treatment for the virus and an effective vaccine against it. Neither of these are predicted to be available by the Fall or even into 2021. Therefore, our Diocesan Convention will be held virtually in order that we continue the effort to mitigate the virus in our larger community. This Diocesan Convention takes on a greater importance than before as we strive together to shape our future as The Episcopal Diocese of Utah in a vastly different world than what we ever imagined."

Bishop Scott B. Hayashi

The Convention will start September 19th at 10:00 MDT via Zoom or another similar electronic network

Registration will again now be open. Delegates will need to register to receive information and electronic voting credentials.

A worship service will take place September 20th as live streamed            from the Cathedral Church of          St. Mark

Nominations for Diocesan Office are open again and will remain open until September 12th. Elections will be done electronically. Resolution information will be forthcoming.

The Episcopal Church in Utah

Bishop Daniel S. Tuttle formally started the Episcopal Church in Utah with his arrival in Salt Lake City on July 2, 1867. The Church became known for its social justice ministry with the creation of Utah’s first school system for children of all religions. Bishop Tuttle also started St. Mark’s Hospital to serve the thousands of miners who had no other health care options. He tirelessly traveled by stage and horseback to establish churches from Montana to Arizona.

Today, The Rt. Rev. Scott B. Hayashi continues the heritage of his predecessor, Bishop Tuttle addressing contemporary social justice issues such as immigration, LGBT, gun violence, poverty and other issues. Bishop Hayashi also shepherds 22 congregations, many of them the original churches established by Bishop Tuttle.
