Hello Catholic Utah Community!  Please read the following carefully! 

Upcoming Events planned by Catholic Utah:

Sign up for the Catholic Utah Picnic-OPEN TO ALL!  
All are welcome to join us at Canyon Rim Park (east pavilion) on Sunday, June 23 at 4:30pm!  We will have a Taco Truck and Catholic Utah will provide dessert. We have access to a horseshoe pit, baseball field, playground, and an open field with path that is great for scooters and kites!  Of course, there will also be plenty of tables in the shade to sit and relax as well.  Bring your gloves, bats, soccer balls, and kites and join us for a fun afternoon.  This event is BYOB and alcohol is allowed at Canyon Rim Park.  Please sign up in advance so we can provide an accurate count to the Taco Truck to make sure we have plenty of food!   Cost is $5 per family and you can sign up at CatholicUtah.org.  If you are able to help us spread the word at your parish, please reply to this email and we will send you our promo materials for your parish bulletin boards and bulletins!  Thank you!

Join the Catholic Utah bookclub for mid-20's to mid 50's Adults! 
We will read Catholic books and meet 4-6 times per year.  This is a very relaxed and casual group, so even if you only aim to come once per year, we’d love to have you!  Consider joining us to help motivate you to study your Catholic Faith this year. To get on the list for bookclub, email Gracie at gepalomb@gmail.com.  Our first book is by Jennifer Fulwiler and called Something Other than God--it is a very entertaining and easy read!  We are planning to meet in early June, so start reading! 

Volunteers Needed TOMORROW--OPEN TO ALL! 
We still need volunteers to serve dinner to the homeless at the St. Vincent DePaul Dining Hall TOMORROW, May 21 from 4:30 to 6:30pm.   We will be taking a break from this ministry this summer, so this is the last meal we are serving until fall.  You can sign up to help by clicking here.  Thank you!  

Future Speakers!
We are thrilled to announce that we have Deacon Harold Burke-Sivers booked to come in September of 2020 for both Theology Uncorked and a Large Event for all!  Many speakers are booked over a year in advance, but we are working hard to get a speaker for the fall and spring of next year!  Thank you for your patience! 

Consider Donating to Catholic Utah! 
Thank you to all who have already generously supported Catholic Utah!  In order to book future speakers, we need to send deposits to reserve the dates.  Deposits for speakers range from $500-$1500 per speaker, and we also pay to cover their travel, accommodations, and the rest of their fees.  While ticket sales help, we use your donations to off-set these costs and keep ticket prices low.  If you are interested in supporting this ministry, please visit CatholicUtah.org/donate or mail a check payable to Catholic Utah to 3350 S 2940 E #9635, SLC, UT 84109. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit and all donations are tax-deductible.  Thank you for believing in this ministry and working with us to Educate and Build Community for Utah Catholics!

Other Catholic Events We've Heard About:

St. Catherine of Siena: Pentecost Vigil Night of Prayer on Saturday, June 8 from 8-11pm.  Gather for Adoration, Meditation on the Seven Gifts of the Holy Spirit, Silent Prayer and Taize Music, and Byzantine Akathist to the Holy Spirit.

Holy Hour at the Carmelite Monastery:  Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, The Rosary, a Homily, and Benediction at 3pm on the 3rd Sunday of Each Month.  The next dates for this Holy Hour are June 16, July 21, and August 18.  Some "in-between" adults have started attending this regularly and encourage others to join them!  This is OPEN TO ALL!

St. Mary's in Park City:  On Sunday, August 11, join St. Mary's to celebrate the Feast of the Assumption.  St Mary's will hold a Marian Procession from the historic Old Town Chapel on Main Street to the new church campus.  Once they get to the new campus, they will hold Mass followed by a big parish party.  More details coming soon!
