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.

Church is near the Avenues)

Quiet place to pray
a place to heal~

My gran father is from NewMexico

Worked in the mines as the family grew..The trend followed as my father is from Utah
And worked as a miner.Museum of natural history is a place to visit if ever youre in Utah.
Catholic religion is sole key in the History as well..

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.

As Ben Franklin said: "Genetlemen, we must all hang together, or assuredly, we will all hang seperately."


Fabulous pictures and great article.


Thank you Deseret News for this nice article.

SLC Mormon

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.


The Cathedral bells have tolled after the funeral of all LDS Presidents, since the Cathedral was built.


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 thrives.


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 though the Mormons were the first in Utah!
