Since 2004, I've had the opportunity each Fall to produce a short documentary for the Cathedral of the Madeleine's Bishop's Dinner. The films have been used at the annual event to raise funds for the Cathedral's upkeep and maintenance.
This year the Diocese celebrated the arrival of a new Bishop, The Most Reverend Oscar A. Solis. As a subject for this year's video, I focused on the Cathedral's role as the "Mother Church" for the Catholic Diocese of Salt Lake City and the greater Utah community. During production, I had the opportunity to travel with Bishop Solis to two Catholic Parishes, one in Salt Lake City and another in St. George, Utah.
It was a joy to watch the Bishop interact with parishioners! Before celebrating a confirmation mass for teenagers at Sacred Heart Catholic Church, the Bishop asked if the youth knew the rules during the Mass. Several teens shouted "Don't be on your cell phone!" The Bishop replied, "Yes, that would be nice, but the most important rule is don't fall asleep! And if you do fall asleep, don't snore." He has a fun sense of humor that the Parishioners enjoy.
Here is a clip from this year's Bishop's Dinner video that shows the Bishop's travels along with a few images of the Bishop's visit to Sacred Heart Catholic Church.
