Other Catholic Events We've Heard About:
Holy Hour at the Carmelite Monastery:
Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, the Rosary, a Homily, and Benediction takes place at 3pm on the 3rd Sunday of each month at the Carmelite Monastery in Holladay. The next dates for this Holy Hour are September 22, October 20, November 17, and December 15. Some "in-between" adults have started attending this regularly and encourage others to join them! This is OPEN TO ALL!
Carmelite Fair and 'Run for the Nuns' 5k:
Sunday, September 15th from 11am to 5pm--Come together with Catholics from around the diocese for this really fun fair that includes good food, games for kids, auctions, and a 5k that starts at 8am. There is also a golf outing planned for September 22nd! Shuttles are available for parking areas nearby. To find out more and register for the 5k or golf tournament, click here.
32nd annual Knights of Columbus Life Chain:
On Sunday, October 6 from 1-2pm, people will gather for a one-hour peaceful silent prayer vigil for the health and safety of the unborn at the intersection of 10600 S and State Street in Sandy, UT. This event is being held at the same time in cities across the country. Volunteers will be asked to stand on the sidewalk near this intersection for one hour of silent prayer. The Knights will provide signs, but everyone is welcome to bring their own. The event is family-oriented, peaceful, and respectful. There will be nothing graphic or provocative. There will also be no publicly-led prayers. Everyone will be asked to pray silently. We'd encourage members of our Catholic Utah community to attend and join with other Catholics at this meaningful event!
Events at St Mary's in Park City:
"Weekly Way of Christ Talk and Meal" every Thursday evening, **NEW** Latin Mass at 3pm every Sunday at St. Mary's Old Town Chapel, **NEW** Young Adult Mass, free meal, and talk every Friday 6:30-9pm at St. Mary's Old Town Chapel starting September 13th with "How to Discern and Live Out a Vocation."
