- Salt Lake City-Ogden, UT (1888PressRelease) February 14, 2012 - Participating organizations include Maliheh Free Clinic, Baby Your Baby, Friends for Sight, St. James Food Bank, Dimple Dell Recreation Center, and many others.
The event was inspired by Episcopal Bishop Scott Hayashi's message that everyone should be "physically healthy so they can stay emotionally and spiritually strong." He says that emphasizing faith is a natural fit for a diocese that established Utah's first hospital (St. Mark's) and for a faith that considers the human body a "temple of the Holy Spirit."
St. James Episcopal Church is a parish of the Episcopal Church, part of the worldwide Anglican Communion. It's located at 7486 Union Park Avenue in Midvale, just south of the I-215 Union Park Exit, about 15 minutes from downtown Salt Lake City.
