This we ask in the name of Jesus Christ.

Bishop Search Timeline 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 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.
