Diocese celebrates the Feast of St. Blaise with traditional blessing of throats

Friday, Feb. 06, 2015
SALT LAKE CITY — Parishioners in the Diocese of Salt Lake City had the opportunity to have their throats blessed on the Feast of Saint Blaise Feb. 3. 
The blessing of throats is a sacramental, said the Most Rev. John C. Wester, Bishop of Salt Lake City. “That means that it is a symbolic action accompanied by prayer, which is meant to be an occasion of grace. It is not a sacrament, it is a devotion in which we pray for the intercession of St. Blaise to deliver us from the ailments of the throat and from every other evil.”

Legislature considering health care, prison issues this session

Friday, Feb. 06, 2015
The 2015 legislative session looks very similar in some respects to the 2014 session. About this time last year, the Diocese of Salt Lake City was advocating for Governor Gary Herbert and legislators to expand Medicaid in the state to individuals living at less than 138 percent of the federal poverty level (i.e. making roughly $16,000 or less per year). This year, we continue to advocate for increased health coverage across the state with one key difference: Gov. Herbert has proposed a plan that would cover tens of thousands of low-income Utahns, while legislators, through the Health Reform Task Force, continue to promote a far more expensive and less expansive coverage plan. >>>
