We are planning the Mission trip for July 22 - 27. This year, we will be serving the members of the Wind River reservation. Mission trips are all about moving into new territory and experiencing something different. Sometimes service stretches us beyond what we're used to... and that's OK!

We will partner with the Eastern Shoshone and Northern Arapaho tribes through kids programming and home repair. 

The 2018 Diocesan Development Drive's theme is "Blessed are those who hear the word of God and obey it".  This is a reminder that we are called to be faithful servants, to proclaim the good news, and to be the hands and feet of Jesus. How is this possible when we are so busy in our daily lives?

St. John the Baptist Parish has recently named new leaders of our Culture of Life Ministry Team.  They are Sherri and Mat Brickley who have moved to Utah recently from Kansas.  They will be more fully introduced soon.


By the time you are reading this we will have ‘hosted’ some of the biggest Mass crowds of the year on Ash Wednesday.  It speaks to the power of symbols done well in a Catholic liturgical celebration. 

YOU is a study program produced by Ascension Press, the same publisher that brings to our Parish; Chosen, A journey toward Confirmation and Altaration the Mystery of the Mass revealed.

The world has changed. The modern presentation of person-hood has challenges that didn't exist in the past. Today, teens are given conflicting messages on a daily basis, and an approach based simply in rules to be followed is not enough. They need to know that not only is each teen unique, unrepeatable gift of God, but so also is their sexuality, and all aspects of their lives.

Christ in the City SLC is an opportunity for Catholic young adults from the Utah Valley to come together in prayer and conversation. It is co-sponsored by St. Catherine's Newman Center and the Diocese of Salt Lake City. This is meant to be an area-wide event, so even if you can't make it, please share it with your friends!

We meet on the 1st Wednesday of every month at the Cathedral of the Madeleine (331 E South West Temple, SLC). Our event is targeted to Catholic young adults (ages 18-35) in the greater Salt Lake City area, but all are welcome to join!

The night starts off with the exposition of the Blessed Sacrament and a Holy Hour of prayer, music, and silence. Priests will be available for the Sacrament of Reconciliation. We end the night by going somewhere to socialize and build community.
