The Utah Mission welcomes you to observe the miracle of the
2000 year old Catholic Mass
Again welcome to this mission. You may be attending or thinking about attending a Catholic Mass, or maybe you have considered attending the Catholic RCIA program or this may be your first experience with the Catholic Church, or maybe you have had previous contact with members of the Catholic faith. In any case, you have probably come to this site with some questions about the Catholic Church, its beliefs and the Catholic RCIA.
God always speaks the truth to us. Jesus described himself as "the way, the truth and the life" (John 14: 6-11). God encourages us to live in His truth through Jesus Christ, within the Trinity. Faith cannot be built upon a false pretense. Faith-seeking is one of the oldest preoccupations of the human mind. We seek to understand as best we can God our Creator and His love for each one of us. At one time or another we all may feel alone. Some of us have been rejected; some of us have rejected another. Some have come against great trials and given up on life altogether.
It is our hope that we can share the Love of Christ with you, because He can help our lives become happier and more meaningful. The peace that Christ can bring when we come to Him for strength in our suffering and our joy can replace every pill ever made, every drink ever drank and every new age psychiatrist that ever lived.
We are all in need of our Savior"
The Parable of the Prodigal Son in the Gospel of Luke is familiar to all of us, as we are all in need of our savior. The Prodigal son has the nerve to ask for his inheritance even before his father has died. Then without thought or good conscience he goes out and spends every last penny on those things that only the world could offer. Not until he is confronted with hopeless failure and a deep despair, does he yearn to return home, to his fathers embrace.
Repentant and willing to do anything possible to win back his father's love he begins his journey back home. . . as he approaches his home to his surprise his father comes running towards him with open arms.
He embraces his son, glad that his son has returned home to him, and giving no mind to what he has done or
or what he has failed to do. Its a breathtaking story of God's mercy for all of us, God's patient grace, and His willingness to welcome each of us home into His loving and forgiving arms forever.
"For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found.
