We hope you had a wonderful and blessed Easter! There's a lot going on for Catholic Utah, so please read the following carefully!
Upcoming Events planned by Catholic Utah:
Sign Up for Theology Uncorked!
Join us for our next Theology Uncorked event at 6:30pm on May 9th with Jon Leonetti! Last week, we were so blessed to receive some generous donations from people who believe in this ministry. Their generosity made it possible for us to lower the price from $25 to $15! Head over to CatholicUtah.org and reserve your spot today! If you would like to learn more about Jon Leonetti, click here. It is going to be a great event for our mid-20's to mid-50's community, so spread the word if you know others who may be interested in joining our Catholic Utah community!
We are ready to launch our Catholic Utah Book Club!
Join other "in-between" adults to read and discuss Catholic books in our Catholic Utah Book Club! Gracie Palombo and Dani Holmes have graciously volunteered to be in charge of the book club. The first book will be a book called Something Other Than God by Jennifer Fulwiler. This is a very fun read and we’re sure will lead to a great discussions! If you are interested in being part of the Catholic Utah book club, please email Gracie Palombo at firstname.lastname@example.org and she will add you to the group to receive invitations and more details for the book club events! For safety reasons, we will not be posting the time and location of book club meetings on our website or on Facebook and Instagram, so be sure you send Gracie an email to express your interest in joining!
