Bishop's Statement on Colorado Springs Tragedy

On behalf of the people of God in the Diocese of Salt Lake City, I want to extend sincerest condolences and prayers for the victims of the tragic and senseless loss of lives in Colorado Springs.

The Catholic Church opposes violence in any form. We respect life and support the God given human dignity of each person.

I share with you the statement from The Bishop of Colorado Springs, The Most Reverend James R Golka.

May God bless us all, especially these victims, their families and the community so impacted by this tragedy.

The Most Reverend Oscar A. Solis, D.D.

Diocesan Statement on U.S. Supreme Court Decision

The Catholic Diocese of Salt Lake City welcomes efforts to protect the dignity and sanctity of every life from conception to natural death.  We are grateful that the U.S. Supreme Court recognizes the human within in the womb, but we also recognize it is the responses of communities to women in need before, during and after pregnancy and the birth of a child that are the most important to building a culture of life. 


Courts cannot ensure that women have the support and resources needed to raise healthy children. We encourage all communities of faith, neighbors, friends, and family to be ready and willing to walk with moms as they seek to provide lives of dignity for their children.


Catholics can help through our diocesan Walking with Moms in Need program and Project Rachel. The Diocese will also continue to advocate for private and public supports, such as the Child tax Credit, health coverage for all children and extended coverage for new moms, and deeply affordable housing to support the development of strong families.
