Latin Mass or Eastern Lit in Utah and or Nevada? (We're traveling)
#1
We'll be traveling through the Salt Lake City area and need all the Latin Mass and/or Easter Liturgy options we can get.  I don't trust all of the directories out there because a lot of them are out dated so I'd prefer to hear from people who know first hand of any in or within a couple hours of Salt Lake City.  Thanks

St. Martin De Porres Catholic Church hosts a diocesan TLM as far as I can tell, but you should call to verify (always do that if traveling, even if you get info from someone who lives in the area. Schedules can change suddenly).

Saint Martin de Porres Catholic Church, LLC #236
4914 S 2200 W
Taylorsville, UT 84118
Phone: (801) 968-2369 Fax: (801) 968-9675

TLM is at 2:00pm

As far as Eastern Rite churches go, you're out of luck.

Contrary to what Tradne4163 has to say, you aren't out of luck with Eastern Rite. There is a Maronite parish, St. Jude's. It's been there for at least a decade.

Here's a link to its info:   http://parishesonline.com/scripts/HostedSites/org.asp?p=1&ID=18357

In addition to St. Martin de Porres, there is also one TLM at 8:00 a.m. on the Sunday after First Saturday and every Wednesday evening at 6:00 p.m. at St. James the Just in Ogden (http://www.stjamescatholic.com/) and 10:00 a.m. every Sunday at Our Lady of the Holy Trinity Trappist Abbey (http://www.holytrinityabbey.org/) These two are further north than SLC, but they are still options!

As far as Nevada goes, I suggest you go to the SSPX parish if you are in Vegas. My fiancee and I went there (Vegas) last year with her mother, and there was only one "Latin Mass" besides the Society's. She is not a fan of the Society, so we went there. Turns out, it was a Novus Ordo. Talk about a bait & switch! I was not pleased...

Guess I should have been more thorough.  :blush: I only tried to look up Byzantine Rite. Sorry.
On a side note, A friend of mine had the same bait and switch experience when she went to Cherokee Village in Arkansas. Even though Ecclesia Dei listed a TLM there, it was the New Mass.

:grin: You're not the first one to make that mistake, and you likely won't be the last. I only know about them because I live in Utah.

To Romish Papist: It's always a good idea to call ahead, wherever you choose to go. St. Martin de Porres is pretty consistent with their Mass, and so is St. Jude's (obviously) but there have been times when both of the other TLM's have been canceled and only the regulars/parishioners knew about it. I know some people who traveled for almost an hour to St. James a couple of Wednesdays, only to find the church locked and nobody there. Needless to say, they weren't happy about it.
