Episcopal Church in Utah has ministered in Utah since its humble beginnings in 1867

From The Desert News-

The day The Right Rev. Daniel Sylvester Tuttle of New York state, the Episcopal Church's newly appointed missionary bishop of Montana, Idaho and Utah, arrived in Salt Lake City the summer of 1867, he wrote the following in his journal:

"Having spent a whole week in the mail coach from Denver, we arrived safely at Salt Lake City. Laus Deo (Praise (be) to God).

"In the evening, I preached at Independence Hall. The Revs. and Msgrs. Goddard, Miller Foote and Haskins were present."

His trip by stage coach came after riding cross-country from the East Coast to Denver by train.
