You will notice on our diocesan coat of arms the symbolism of the waves of the Great Salt Lake. This derives from a third century writing of St. Hippolytus. The world is a sea, in which the Church, like a ship, is beaten by the waves but not submerged. The STAR OF THE SEA members help to fund the thirty ministries, programs and services of the Catholic Diocese of Salt Lake City. Because of their generosity, the Diocese is able to meet the growing needs of vocations, religious education, diaconate formation, rural mission outreach, persons with disabilities, and the many other pastoral programs. We are very grateful to the following for their participation as STAR OF THE SEA members.
