The Diocesan Development Drive is a parish-wide
appeal to support not only the parishes but the ministries,
programs and services offered by the Diocese. Through
faith motivated generosity, individuals have the opportunity
to support a wide range of ministries that individual
parishes cannot provide. These ministries have a positive
impact on the Catholic Community throughout the state of
Utah. The 2015 DDD begins on
Sunday Feb. 1st. All registered
parishioners will receive a packet from
Bishop Wester outlining how they can
participate. Supplemental information
is also available at your parish. If you
desire further information, you can call
the diocese at 801-328-8641 or go on
line at

oportunidad de apoyar a un gran número de ministerios
que las parroquias por si solas no pueden proveer. Estos
ministerios tienen un impacto positivo en la Comunidad
Católica a lo largo del estado de Utah. El DDD 2015
comienza el domingo 1ero de febrero. Todos los feligreses
registrados recibirán un paquete del Obispo Wester el cual
muestra el cómo se puede participar. Información adicional
