Martyr and King of Norway
Born 995. Killed in battle July 29, 1031.
Canonized in 1164.
Patron saint of: Norway, Faroe Islands, difficult marriages, kings and carvers.
He spent most of his youth as a Norse raider until 1010 when he was baptized. He became king of Norway in 1015 at the age of 20 and embarked upon a war to free Norway from the domination of the Danes and the Swedes. He requested missionaries to advance the Christianization of Norway.
Rebels aided by Denmark overthrew him in 1029 and drove him into exile in Russia. Olaf returned in 1031 to retake his crown but was slain in battle at Stiklestad, Norway.
Olaf was revered after his death due to reports of miracles occurring at his tomb. He was greatly respected as a champion of Norwegian independence, and his shrine became the foundation of the cathedral of Trondheim.
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.
Saint Olaf Church was established in 1943, as a Paulist Mission to include the entire Davis County. The name of St. Olaf, Viking king and patron saint of Norway, was chosen by Bishop Hunt in recognition of the Scandinavian residents of Utah. From our humble beginnings, today we have grown into a tightknit community of over 500 families serving Bountiful and most of southern Davis County. We are part of the Catholic Diocese of Salt Lake City. To learn more about our church, please contact the parish office.
