As God is the author of every life, we, as disciples of Christ, need to be instruments of light to those in need. If you ever hear of a woman in an unexpected or difficult pregnancy and she needs help, would you know how to assist her? The USCCB hopes that every Catholic church and its parishioners can come to the aid of these women to give them valuable resources that they may not even know exist. For Saint Olaf, these resources can be found in the vestibule of the church or at
Moms in Need - Resources
May we all contribute to a culture of life and love.

Sunday, October 24th at the 9:00 a.m. Mass, Seven adults will make public their intent to journey closer to Christ, as we celebrate the Rite of Acceptance into the Order of the Catechumenate and Rite of Welcoming Candidates for Full Communion. Please take the opportunity to welcome these individuals to Saint Olaf. May we all pray for them and their faith journey as they prepare for the Sacraments of Initiation.
What is Dismissal?
Why do the catechumens, (adults preparing for baptism), leave Mass after the Liturgy of the Word and Homily? This is an opportunity to provide additional nourishment of the Word of God at a time when they cannot participate in the Eucharist. It also brings to the attention of our Saint Olaf community, that we have catechumens among us that we should “give help to those who are searching for Christ”. (RCIA 9).
The prayer for the catechumens describes this beautifully “My dear friends this community now sends you forth to reflect more deeply upon the Word of God which you have shared with us today. Be assured of our loving support and prayers for you. We look forward to the day when you will share fully in the Lord’s Table.” (RCIA 96)
Saint Olaf parish is a Catholic community committed in faith to witness the good news of Christ in our daily lives.
In order to build the kingdom of God on earth, we gather to worship, educate, serve and grow in God’s love.
Please remember the sick of our parish in your prayers that they may be healed, strengthened, and know the love of God during their suffering:
These names will be printed in our bulletin for the next 4 weeks. Call the office at 801.295.3621 to make changes, remove or add a loved one to the prayer list.
If your loved one is suffering from a serious or life-threatening illness, please request a Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick. Father Andrzej will gladly minister the sacrament and pray for God’s healing.
Saint Teresa of Avila wrote: “When you cannot receive Communion and cannot attend Mass, you can make a spiritual communion, which is a most beneficial practice; by it the love of God will be greatly impressed on you.”
