A message from

The Most Reverend Oscar A. Solis, D.D.

Greetings of Christ's Peace and Love!

I am Bishop Oscar Solis, happy to be here in the Diocese of Salt Lake City to join you in helping our Catholic Church continue to grow in Utah. I am excited to invite everyone to embark on a journey of faith renewal so we can become the Church God wants us to be - a people of faith who know, love, and serve the Lord.

The Church exists to evangelize. As her members and by virtue of our baptism, we are called to be missionary disciples of Christ.

Together, we carry out the mission of Christ by reaching out to the various parishes and mission communities throughout the diocese in Utah through the two pillars of our faith: prayer and works of charity, focusing our minds, hearts, and efforts to establish a vibrant Church in our midst.

When I arrived four years ago, I immediately learned of the importance of the Diocesan Development Drive (DDD). Since 1966 until now, the DDD has been an instrument of God that helps us sustain the mission of our Church by providing the much needed funding in support of the vital ministries that impact the lives of our brothers and sisters, most especially in Utah’s poorest parishes and rural missions.

Be assured of my prayers and grateful appreciation for your kindness and support of our Church and of our priests. By the power of the Holy Spirit and the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, may God reward you and fill your hearts with His graces of joy, love and peace.

Thank you and God bless you all!

The Most Reverend Oscar A. Solis, D.D.

Bishop of Salt Lake City
