St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church hosts several congregations, including the Spanish-speaking Iglesia Episcopal San Esteban.
The Right. Reverend Scott B. Hayashi was consecrated as the Eleventh Bishop of Utahon November 6, 2010 following his election in May, 2010.
Bishop Hayashi served as Canon to the Ordinary for the Diocese of Chicago, for five years, prior to his Utah election. In his Chicago position, he acted as the Bishop’s confidante, Chief of Staff to 20 employees, deployment officer, consultant on congregational development, as leader of Diocesan Council, and as general troubleshooter for the diocese. Prior to holding that position, Scott was a parish priest from 1984-2005, serving in parishes in Washington, Ogden, Utah, and California.
The Rev. Mary S. Janda
In June, 2007, I was ordained a Deacon in the Episcopal Church after seven years of study and process. In January, 2008, I was ordained a Priest in the Episcopal Church. I have served as an Associate Rector at St. James’ in Midvale and All Saints’ in Salt Lake City. I am presently on Diocesan Council and I co-chair the Anti-Racism Committee with The Rev. Canon Pablo Ramos, DD. Since 2013, I have been serving as a supply priest for the Episcopal Diocese of Utah—helping out when there is no priest to serve the Eucharist/Mass at our different churches. In addition, I will be doing supply work in Ocean View, Hawaii for 2 ½ months beginning in mid-August. This will be an adventure for my husband and me, to be sure!
Now a new journey begins with St. Stephen’s Community as the new vicar. Upon my return from Hawaii, I will begin this exciting assignment on November 1st. I so look forward to getting to know all of you and to hear your stories as you will hear mine. You will all be in my prayers and thoughts through the coming years.
