The Catholic Diocese of Salt Lake City has honored five longtime priests for reaching anniversary milestones in their ecclesiastical careers.
During a recent celebratory dinner at St. Vincent de Paul Parish, Bishop Oscar A. Solis declared that Utah Catholics are " blessed by your presence and your work here building God's kingdom in the Diocese of Salt Lake City."
Leading the five clerics in longevity of service is Monsignor Terence M. Moore, a priest for half a century. He was ordained June 10, 1967, at the Cathedral of the Assumption in Thurles, Ireland.
Moore was named Prelate of Honor to His Holiness in 2008. He retired from active ministry in 2013, according to the Intermountain Catholic newspaper.
