I though the Mormons were the first in Utah!
When my wife and I would visit SLC (she was Catholic) we would always take in a
Mass here. It's a beautiful building.
I enjoyed this article. I'm a former Catholic, but I have respect toward my
former religion and not bitterness. Utah is a better place when this community
The Cathedral bells have tolled after the funeral of all LDS Presidents, since
the Cathedral was built.
What a beautiful building with a wonderful history for SLC. It does all of us
good when we respect and cherish religous freedom for everyone.
Thank you Deseret News for this nice article.
Fabulous pictures and great article.
As Ben Franklin said: "Genetlemen, we must all hang together, or assuredly, we
will all hang seperately."
If I remember correctly the bells on the Cathedral tolled to mark the death of
Joseph F. Smith or something along those lines. There are also the
stories such as how John M. McFarland taught his Mormon choir in St. George to
sing passages in Latin so they could help Father Scanlan perform a full mass.
you are welcome ;p
Makes me grateful for all my great Catholic friends!

history is a place to visit if ever youre in Utah.Catholic religion is
sole key in the History as well..
Quiet place to pray a place to heal~
Interesting article, I learned a thing or two I never knew. I hope Catholics
always feel they have a home in Utah and Salt Lake.
