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.
